Birth-Order Effects in the Academically Talented.
Parker, Wayne D.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v42 n1 p29-38 Win 1998
Birth-order position was studied among 828 academically talented sixth-grade students. When compared to census data, the sample was disproportionately composed of first-born students. However, this effect was largely explained by the covariate of family size, with small families over represented among the gifted. Other findings indicated no relationship between birth-order position and personality and adjustment. (DB)
