Default IQ by country

How very interesting... I would be grateful if this doesn't spiral down to a racist thread.

The first chart maybe. The rest seem more up to date. Not sure it changes that much during the course of a generation though.

They are from different sources. I wanted to cross check the overall trends.

Im sure that this isn't an exact science. Maybe the sample included Steve Irwin in one but not the other.

It was an estimate, so maybe they estimated the township aboriginal populations as well. A sad indictment on Australia

I'm surprised Lebanon is the same as the rest of the Middle East. Thought these guys were 'special'.

Does it say how the IQs were tested? And how many people were tested in each country to arrive at thes results?

If a standard test across all countries that wouldn't be a fair system due to cultural and educational differences. It's an impossible comparison to make really.

Yep. A far more meaningful test is on of emotional intelligence. But equally impossible to do across the globe; however, not that difficult to guestimate after spending a few weeks interacting with the natives.
