Epigone, did you ever investigate the correlation between views on immigration and fertility?
I recall AltHype showing a study that views on immigration was a particularly heritable political trait(0.6). Thus whichever side breeds more is likely to come out on top on immigration policy in the end.
In nearly 3,000 posts, the blog does not appear to have taken a look at that. It’s an inexplicable oversight since the General Social Survey makes it easy to do, albeit with suboptimally small non-white samples. So now that will be rectified:
While views on immigration may be significantly heritable there is scant evidence here that one view is outbreeding the other, as might be expected to be the case with something like views on the desirability of having children. So the results are inconclusive–but unlike Stephen Gould we did run the numbers.
