Dear Hugh, 

This is an interesting comparison. As I read it, I found myself asking the following questions, most of which could be folded into one about representativeness.

Dear Hugh,
I'm enjoying seeing how you're deploying data in your project -- with my own research focusing on an individual, my research doesn't lend itself to this kind of analysis across/between groups, although perhaps as I follow your research your approach will help me see possibilities for similar approaches in my work.
