  1. X-linkage, lyonization and a female premium in the verbal IQ results of Orkney schoolchildren, 1947-75.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper reports the preliminary findings of an analysis of the Moray House (verbal IQ) results of a base sample of 4383 Orkney children due to be tested in the schools at age 11 ± 1 1/2 years in 1947-75.

    Girls enjoy a 3.63% premium relative to phenotypically equivalent boys at test age.

    Relationships within the sample, which includes some members of the parental generation, are known.

    The trait is found to be X-linked, with nine phenotypes in the boys, and lyonization is involved.
