Statistical Inference in the Great IQ Debate.
Goldberger, Arthur S.
The estimation of genetic models reported by J. L. Jinks and L. J. Eaves in a recent review are critically examined. A number of errors in procedure and interpretation are found. It is concluded that the evidence, provided by kinship correlations, for the proposition that intelligence is highly heritable, is not persuasive. (Author/BJG)
