    fall on

    Please make the following in red clear.

    Inflation has actually been found to have a stronger connection to crime than joblessness. One study ... found that inflation had far and away the greatest effect on property crime, greater than variables like manufacturing employment. The authors write: "the answer leaves no room for interpretation. Almost all of the impact of the three macroeconomic variables falls on the inflation rate."

    Does it just mean "the three macroeconomic variables have a great effect on the inflation rate?" Or "inflation has as strong an effect on crime as that of the three variables combined?"

    Thank you.

    Re: fall on

    The inflation rate takes almost all of the effect of the three economic variables.
