The Impact of Family Resources on Childhood IQ.
Wolfe, John R.
Journal of Human Resources, v17 n2 p213-35 Spr 1982
The effects of family income, parents' education, maternal employment, and family composition on the IQ scores of four- and seven-year-olds are estimated, using a sample of more than 3,000 children. The results suggest that childhood cognitive development plays a minor role in the intergenerational transmission of wealth. (Author/CT)
