From Vox: Getting worked up over Charles Murray being allowed on a podcast seems a little bizarre. (Here's the podcast.) Under the faux indignation and clickbait headline, however, this is about as good an attempt as any to shore up the Conventional Wisdom that the racial differences in average intel
Speaking of Arthur Jensen, Occidentalist has a table listing all 40 academic studies he could find of the white-black gap in average IQ in the U.S. They range from 1918, when it was measured at 17 points, to 2008, when it was found to be 16 points. So, don't let anybody tell you The Gap... Read More
From the NYT:“Rather than concede to the unmalleable forces of heredity, we decided that we would undertake research that would allow us to understand the disparate developmental trajectories we saw,” she and her former graduate supervis
Probably. Chuck at Occidentalist assembles a bunch of test reports, here and here. It's not as well-studied of a subject as it is in the U.S., so it's hard to make sense of all the data, but most point toward the white-black gap in the U.K. being well under a standard deviation.I haven't seen a good meta-analyses...

The oldest SAT score report on the College Board website is from 1996, right after the "recentering" in 1995 that raised scores about 100 points on a 400 to 1600 scale.

There are a number of reasons, but one is often overlooked. I explore an aspect of the sociology and psychology of Republican voters.Read... Read More

The IQ gap is rather like the dog that didn't bark in the Sherlock Holmes story, palpable by its absence. Raising black IQ... Read More
I come not to bury Freakonomics, but to praise it. The new book Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything by celebrated University of Chicago economist Steven D. Levitt and ace journalist Stephen J. Dubner is a publishing sensation. As I write, it ranks #2 on Amazon.com's bestseller list, trailing only the... Read More
As I briefly mentioned last week, blogger Tacitus has been working himself up into a fine lather lately over the always-fascinating question of Steve Sailer: Evil or Vile? (See here, here, and here.) My crime was to point out, based on an insight of Thomas Sowell's, that: To which, Tacitus said: Some of my scientifically-informed... Read More
I want to contribute some observations about the landmark book IQ and the Wealth of Nations by Richard Lynn of the U. of Ulster and Tatu Vanhanen of the U. of Helsinki. It was the subject of an extremely informative Feb. 27th VDARE.COM review by J. Philippe Rushton, which this is intended to complement. The... Read More
