Description: We scrape data from a unique dataset of Danish first names and socioeconomic outcomes not previously made available to the public (“Navnehjulet”). We visualize the data and show that there is a general factor with indicator loadings in the expected directions (positive: income, owning your own place to live, being married (slightly); negative: having a criminal conviction, being without a job). This result held after controlling for age and for each gender alone.


Files The .R files contains the code for the analyses. Update The files were updated post-publication to fix a dependency issue that has been resolved. The issue was that the code relied on code that eventually become part of the Kirkegaard R package, but was at that time just hosted in an R file on Github which has been deleted. The code was used for plotting purposes only.
