Very interesting paper.

They appear to lump cities together that had Reformation induced laws for the establishment and provision of education/healthcare institutions, social insurance, compensation and quality control for pastors/teachers.

It would be interesting to see if effects could be teased based on the heterogeneous and local nature of these laws. Luther urged many of these legal changes to Councils throughout Germany (his letter "To the Councilmen of All Cities in Germany That They Establish and Maintain Christian Schools") but he only participated in a few select places in make the changes.

That left a lot of local variation.
