World’s Average IQ Distribution Map
Posted on 18th January, 2007
It makes you wonder, despite all their achievements, apparently the Australian has the lowest IQ score in the world besides Botswana.
China, Japan and Korea occupy the top spots with the highest IQ scores.
The map referenced by this article was taken from the book “Race Differences in Intelligence: An Evolutionary Analysis” by Richard Lynn. The book focuses on intelligence per race NOT nationality. Richard and Co “tested” (actually just used others research) approximately 813,778 individuals worldwide so basically 0.01% of the worlds population. The people tested were only those indigenous to each country, so for Australia only 2.4% (approximately 400, 000 people) of the population is indigenous, whereas Asia has an indigenous population of 70%.
