I'm looking for research papers on estimating demographic information (age, wealth, location, gender etc.) out of internet activities (preferably social network activity or browser history).

Where would be a good place to look for?


Last summer, Kaggle ran a competition to predict a users psychopathy, Machiavellianism, Narcissism etc. using only Twitter data. You can see the competition and results here:

  1. personality competition
  2. psychopathy

I recall there was a published paper on the psychopathy prediction, here: http://www.onlineprivacyfoundation.org/research_/Sumner_Predicting_Dark_Triad_Traits_from_Twitter_Usage_V5.pdf


Stuff that I found so far:
Demographic Prediction Based on User’s Browsing Behavior
A Machine Learning Approach to Twitter User Classification
Classifying Latent User Attributes in Twitter
