A recent study conducted by the Social Awareness and Statistical Error faculty at Bristol Claire College (BCC) found that more people, aged 24 to 56, have half shoe sizes than full ones. On a subset of over 1,200 respondents the research showed that people with half shoe sizes are generally more satisfied with their current social standing and gender identity than those with full shoe sizes. A check on a control set indicated that almost two-thirds of people with full shoe sizes had, at one point in their lives, a very distressing episode involving at least one of their natural parents. However, no significant correlation has been established between the latter two findings. BCC has confirmed that they were following up on their research pending financing from various shoemakers, including major manufacturers in India and Vietnam.
