Lynn, Richard
Intelligence, v40 n3 p255-259 May-Jun 2012
Criticisms advanced by Felice and Giugliano (2011) of the thesis that IQs in Italy are higher in the north than in the south are answered and new data confirming the thesis are given from the PISA 2009 study and for math and reading abilities in the recent INVALSI study. New genetic data are given showing higher frequency of blond hair the haplogroup xR1 allele and the haplogroup E1b1b allele as markers for greater percentage northern and central European ancestry in northern Italian regions. (Contains 4 tables.)
