Abstract: The methodology used in Daniel Perttu’s article is analyzed for conformance to several criteria needed in quantitative studies. A number of problems are identified. Some of these appear to be deep structural issues given the nature of the question studied while others are caused by the methodology itself, by both the types of analyses carried out and the nature of the data source. Various suggestions to strengthen the study are made.
