I have a conflict of interest because I have an accepted answer, so my judgment might not be objective enough. However, this is how I see the question:
Testing Roberts's Law: data request on CEO pay and company characteristics
- Main text: A lot of maybe uneccessary content, except for some idea of which firm characteristics you are interested in, in particular firm size, plus the actual question:
Where can I find data on CEO pay and company information?
Given this info, my answer focuses specifically on CEO pay and firm size data sources available. These two are essentially the two requests that are explicit and/or can be implicitly deduced from the question. Hence, the answer does address the question.
From this point of view, I see no particular reason why it should be deleted. Maybe, you can modify it to add the relevant paper. Or maybe, you can reduce it to something like:
I want to test Roberts Law (link to paper + brief discussion of what this is). Hence, I need firm characteristics like CEO pay and firm size. Where can I find these?
(If your original intention was to get some ideas on how to test it, that is a different question altogether, and not so related to the tags used).
