Growth affects political views

Between growth and its political preferences, there is difficult to explain, but statistically significant relationship. To such conclusion scientists from University of Ohio, the study showed that taller men significantly more often inclined to conservative views.

The researchers used data on 9 700 people gathered in 2006 within the framework of another study. After analyzing the results in a new key, the experts found that between height and the probability that he will be sympathetic to conservatives, there is a direct proportion. In men it is manifested in two times more brightly every additional 2.5 cm of growth in the case of men, increase the likelihood of the formation of a conservative 0.8 per cent, and for women by 0.4 percent. Under conservative, according to the researchers, ” in this case means, including a willingness to vote for the relevant political forces.

We will remind, in March of this year, another study conducted by experts from Exeter University and Harvard medical school, showed that the low men on average earn less than tall (a full women less than slim). Then the researchers found that in Britain the difference of 7.5 cm between higher and lower human will be “worth” a second on the average 1,5 thousand feet per annum. It was emphasized that many short people earn a lot, but the average values show in favour of some inequality.

Summing up the new work, experts do not exclude that the two studies can complement each other — for example, we can assume that people of low growth on average, are more likely to experience manifestations of social injustice, which naturally makes them more thirst for social change.
