Abstract

The British IQ of a sample of the Bosniaks (Serbian Muslims) and Serbs in Serbia is estimated at 94, and the British IQ of a sample of Roma at 60. Intelligence was not related to reproductive success among the Bosniaks and Serbs, but among the Roma intelligence was significantly negatively correlated with reproductive success as measured by numbers of surviving grandchildren. Intelligence was significantly negatively correlated with child mortality among the Bosniaks and Roma.
