Population size is associated with implement diversity.


Variables proxying population size: natural log of population size (LPOP). Variables proxying implement diversity: total number of complex subsistants (CSTS), total number of complex subsistant types (NCT), total number of subsistants (STS). Out of four regression models run on each diversity variable (for a total of twelve models), LPOP was included in none of them.
