Abstract

The response clarifies aims and limitations of the study. It describes the association over time between educational attainment (proxy of social position)  and  stature (distal proxy of bio-social disadvantage): it does not aim to investigate the genetic determinants of height. In addition, some caveats are mentioned about the role of the genetic inheritance on social characteristics and some robustness checks are added to the analysis.
