The Social Ecology of Intelligence in the British Isles, France and Spain
The social ecology of intelligence is concerned with the relation between the mean IQ of populations and a variety of social and economic phenomena. Data are presented for the British Isles, France and Spain. It is shown that there are regional variations in the mean population IQ in all three countries. These mean IQs are closely related to measures of intellectual achievement, income, unemployment and infant mortality. It is proposed that the intelligence didfferences are causal to the social and economic differences. Data are also presented to show that selective migration between regions have been an important factor in bringing about contemporary differences in regional mean IQs.
