S and G in Italian regions: Re-analysis of Lynn’s data and new data


The S factor in 21 Italian regions was examined by reanalyzing data published by Lynn (Lynn, 2010) as well as new data compiled from the Italian statistics agency (7 and 10 socioeconomic variables, respectively). The S factors from the datasets were highly correlated (.92) and both are strongly correlated with a G factor from PISA scores (.93 and .88).

Key words: Italy, regions, social inequality, S factor, general socioeconomic factor, IQ, intelligence, cognitive ability, PISA, cognitive sociology
