  1. Results of three negative binomial regression models that use the number of language editions including a person as dependent variable and gender as independent variable, while controlling for profession and birth century. In the full dataset and the subset of people born after 1900, women are slightly more notable than men since the coefficient is significantly positive even when controlling for other variables. : p<0.001.
