Genetic and Environmental Contributions to Educational Attainment in Australia.
Miller, Paul; Mulvey, Charles; Martin, Nick
Economics of Education Review, v20 n3 p211-24 Jun 2001
Data from a large sample of Australian twins indicate that 50 to 65 percent of variance in educational attainments can be attributed to genetic endowments. Only about 25 to 40 percent may be due to environmental factors, depending on adjustments for measurement error and assortative mating. (Contains 51 references.) (MLH)
