A world of National IQ data & NAEP En Puerto Rico

For those interested, here is a non-exhaustive list of international assessments by participating nation. Appendix A

As I was pointing out to Jason Malloy, by linking studies — see the methodology here — one can derive sound national achievement estimates for 80-90% of the world’s nations. For comparison, Lynn and Vanhanen and Altinok et alia provide, respectively, estimates for 60% and 70% of the nations.

Here is a list (table 1), for example, of nations involved in the the Monitoring Learning Achievement survey:

Algeria, Azerbaijan, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, China, Comoros, Croatia, Ecuador, Gabon, Gambia, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyz Republic, Lebanon, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Maldives, Mali, Mauritius, Mongolia, Morocco, Mozambique, Nepal, Niger, Nigeria, Oman, Palestine, Rodrigues (Mauritius), Rwanda, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Seychelles, Slovakia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Uganda, Uzbekistan, Yugoslavia, Zambia, Zanzibar, Yemen, Armenia, Bahrain, Congo (Democratic Republic), Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Haiti, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Lesotho, Namibia, Pakistan, Qatar, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Swaziland, Tajikistan, Togo, Turkmenistan, Tanzania.


Speaking of assessments, was I the only one who didn’t know that native Puerto Ricans have been taking a Spanish version of the NAEP math test? Apparently, this version is available for US Spanish speakers, too.

Absolutely dismal scores.

A few other tidbits:

Here were caste IQs from the YLS.

Here is a picture of a smiling octopus.

Here is some Italian gap by ethnicity info.

    Sorry to be off-topic, but if I were interested in hereditarianism/HBD, do you know any good places to start? Some of these blogs seem rather intimidating with all of the info. I don’t really have any real science education, so if you know any good resources for that, as well, it’d be appreciated. It’s an interesting topic, and I’ve seen Ryan Faulk’s ‘Make the World Flat’. I enjoyed that. I don’t know how solid it was in terms of science (being that I’m ignorant), but his Youtube channel made me consider looking into hereditarianism.
