Gender of Siblings, Cognitive Achievement, and Academic Performance: Familial and Nonfamilial Influences on Children.
Teachman, Jay
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v59 n2 p363-74 May 1997
Uses data on twins (N=355) to obtain estimates of the degree of shared familial influence on cognitive achievement and academic performance. Results indicate that there is considerable shared influence on cognitive achievement but much less for academic performance, suggesting more between-family variation in cognitive achievement than in academic performance.
