Intelligence, v27 n3 p251-66 1999
Studied whether correlations between family characteristics and children's IQs represented causal effects in a sample of 1,349 cousin pairs from 344 families. Results suggest that correlations do not represent pure causal effects and are, for an important part, confounded by genetic and environmental "third variables" shared by extended families. (SLD)
