What Causes Birth Order-Intelligence Patterns? The Admixture Hypothesis, Revived.
Rodgers, Joseph Lee
American Psychologist, v56 n6-7 p505-10 Jun-Jul 2001
Describes why birth order interests both parents and researchers, discussing what really causes apparent birth order effects on intelligence, examining problems with using cross-sectional intelligence data, and noting how to move beyond cross-sectional inferences. Explains the admixture hypothesis, which finds that family size is much more influential in children's intelligence than birth order. (SM)
