An interesting paper. We know that a sizable proportion of articles about people are paid for by the individual themselves or their representative.
I just looked at the gender of all articles created by this sock involved in undisclosed paid editing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Bri/COIbox61#Jeremy112233 Of the 104 BLPs they wrote 87 (84%) were for males and 17 (16%) were for females. The current proportions may partly reflect that males are more interested / willing to buying articles about themselves than females.
