Contributions of Selected Perinatal Variables to Seven-Year Psychological and Achievement Test Scores.
Henderson, N. B.; And Others
Perinatal variables were used to predict 7-year outcome for 538 children, 32% Negro and 68% white. Mother's age, birthplace, education, occupation, marital status, neuropsychiatric status, family income, number supported, birth weight, one- and five-minute Apgar scores were regressed on 7-year Verbal, Performance and Full Scale IQ, Bender, Wide Range Reading, Arithmetic and Spelling, ITPA Auditory Vocal Association, and Draw-A-Man or -Woman test scores. Regressions were calculated for each race, sex, and total group. With all groups combined, perinatal variables correlated significantly with all 7-year tests except Draw-A-Man, -Woman. Although not all 7-year test scores were predicted significantly for the total group, nor was any test predicted for all subgroups, the Bender test was significantly predicted for seven of the nine groups.
