<p>This file has some instructions for using the files from the paper Inequality across prefectures in Japan: An S factor analysis by Emil O. W. Kirkegaard.</p>
<p>The analyses are performed by R and the source files for these analyses all of which end with .R.</p>
<p>start.R loads and merges the data. This file is to be run at every startup.
main.R has the code for the main analyses: Sections 1-8 and 9.1. Manual action is required for getting the results reported in Section 9.2.
sim.R has the code for the simulation mentioned in Section 5.
exploratory_controls.R has the code for the analyses in Section 9.3.</p>
<p>S factor Japan.Rproj is the RStudio project file, which is not necessary but nice to have.</p>
<p>The raw data files from the Japanese statistics bureau are found in the folder "raw data files from e-stat". These are in .xls (MS Excel) format. estat_data.csv is my selection of data from these files.</p>
<p>Sfactor JP project.ods is the data form Kenya Kura. The file is LibreOffice Calc. infant.death rate JP 2005-2014.xlsx is the extra child mortality data examined to determine the source of the 'low' correlations discussed in Section 3. Japan IQ (2007-2015).xlsx has the cognitive data from Kura.</p>
<p>extra_data.csv has the extra population data from Wikipedia used in Section 9.3.</p>
<p>The paper is written in LibreOffice using Zotero as a reference manager. The primary file is paper.odt. paper.pdf is a PDF export of this.</p>
<p>The figures in high quality PNG format are in the "figures" folder.</p>
