A Study of the IQ in Bangladesh

Published: 2007/09/01


In our most recent compilation of IQs for all nations of the world (Lynn and Vanhanen, 2006) we presented measured IQs for 113 nations and estimated IQs for a further 79 nations. The estimated IQs were derived on the assumption that a nation’s IQs would be similar to that of geographically and racially similar nations for which we had measured IQs. At the time of this compilation we had no measured IQ for Bangladesh, so we assumed it would be the same as that of the Indian average for which we had a measured IQ of 82. We have now located a study in Bangladesh from which a measured IQ for can be calculated at 81.
