The tightness of a culture will be negatively associated with COVID-19 deaths.
Hypothesis tested to control for mortality, GDP per capita, income inequality, percent migrant, population density, government efficiency, collectivism, power distance, authoritarianism, median age, days until lockdown, and government stringency. All models involving tightness (2-7) showed significant effects of tightness. (Models 2-7: p<.0004 to .0041; b= -.94 to -1.08)
