Last year’s summary: Russian Demographics in 2018 [2016; 2014]. Preliminary data for 2018 is in.
Georgia slouches Gomorrah
Georgians have a probably apocryphal story about Andrew Young, the black former mayor of Atlanta and ambassador to the United Nations. In an address at historically black Clark Atlanta University, Mr. Young talked about white flight. “No matter where they go,” he said, “we will follow. No matter how far away they move, we will...

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán: Practicing what he preaches.
Anyone with an understanding of the realities of heredity and ethnicity knows, as the saying goes, that “demography is destiny.” To understand this is easy, to actually act upon these demographic trends is, however, quite difficult. It is very hard to get your citizens to make more babies and even hard to get the “right”... Read More
Global Times: China may reward families with more children next year: demographers. It's funny to see China going from a rigid One Child Policy to Russian/Hungarian-style pro-natalism within the space of no more than four years. However, such turnarounds aren't exactly unprecedented in the history of Communist regimes. Mao was a pro-natalist. The One Child... Read More

“Hatched, matched, and dispatched”—my mother’s term for the births, marriages, and deaths columns in our local paper. Let's visit the hatcheries. What's mainly happening in the hatcheries: a slowdown of business. Americans are not making as many babies as we used to: Births plunge to record lows in United States, MSN, May 17, 2018. The...

Last year's summary: Russian Demographics in 2017 Preliminary data for 2017 is in.
Ron Unz asked me to collect all my recent graphs based on data published in the United Nations' World Population Prospects 2017 in one jaw-dropping post. First, here's the latest version of what I've been calling The World's Most Important Graph: Here, however, is the UN's most high end projection for Africa: assume decreasing mortality... Read More
So we correctly make fun of people like Neil Turok and Deirdre McCloskey who expect to discover the next generation of Einsteins amongst 70-75 IQ Africans. Even if we could run the full FLynn program on Africa and raise it up to its genotypic IQ potential of 85-90, it's not like countries with those sorts... Read More
At 92, Phyllis Schlafly was endorsing Trump.
The Only Answer: An Immigration Moratorium
Establishment GOP candidate Karen Handel reportedly could lose to Democrat Jon Ossoff in Tuesday’s critical GA-6 special election, although Republicans have held this direct since the 1970s [Karen Handel Is Keeping Donald Trump At Arm’s Length In Georgia’s 6th District, by Henry J Gomez, Buzzfeed, June 17, 2017]. This is partly because she is (of... Read More
The reason I don't write much about Russia's demographics nowadays is that there isn't much point to it. Up until the early 2010s, the Western media was brimming with misinformation about the subject - what we now call #fakenews - so refuting it was both profitable and easy. Incredibly easy. You didn't really have to... Read More
Turkey has a proud and rich history of military coups. As analysts tirelessly point out, they are even sanctioned by the Constitution as a means of preserving secularism. However, those days have come to an end. The abortive coup of the past few days was in all likelihood the dying gasp of 20th century Turkey.... Read More
When I posted a 2007 map of the share of European children born out of wedlock from Reddit to Twitter, it generated considerably discussion, including a discussion at Razib Kan's blog.
One thing you start noticing when you read commentary on Russia long enough is how the same discredited tropes arise again and again. Zombie-like, they refuse to die.
In 2012 this German video on what the news would be like in 2018 was satire... ... but reality seems to be catching up to and overtaking satire three years in advance. And who says Germans don't plan ahead? This is a one up even on the Muslims who at least stop at first cousins.... Read More

The first 2016 general election poll of September is also the first poll to show Trump beating Hillary. From May through July, Hillary was up by anywhere from 12 to 24 points over Trump. He's now up by five points, continuing a trend in Trump's direction in August: Poll Date Sample MoE Clinton (D) Trump... Read More
A few years ago I put up a post, WORDSUM & IQ & the correlation, as a "reference" post. Basically if anyone objected to using WORDSUM, a variable in the General Social Survey, then I would point to that post and observe that the correlation between WORDSUM and general intelligence is 0.71. That makes sense,... Read More
