Twins and Siblings: Concordance for School-Age Mental Development
Wilson, Ronald S.
Child Development, 48, 1, 211-216, Mar 77
The analysis of WISC scores for 314 school-age twins and 221 of their siblings revealed high concordance of full-scale and verbal IQ for monozygotic twins. The IQ concordance for dizygotic twins, twin-sibling pairs, and sibling pairs were comparable to each other but significantly lower than that for monozygotic twins. (Author/JMB)
