Verbal IQ, race, nativity, GSS 1972-2010

I went back and looked through the General Social Survey data. I defined “White,” “Black,” and “Other” as anyone who identified as such. I defined “native” as anyone who indicated that they and both of their parents were born in the US. I defined “2nd Gen” as anyone who indicated that they were born in the US and who also indicated that one or both of their parents were not. Results: 2nd Gen individuals outperformed natives of the same racial designation. 2nd Gen and Native Blacks scored 0.6 and 0.7 SD, respectively, below native Whites, while 2nd Gen and Native “others” scored 0.45 and 0.55 SD, respectively, below native Whites.
