Indians Have a Genetic IQ of 92?

From Pumpkin Person. I actually think he is only something. Before the latest mass wave of H-1B’s pushed the US Indian IQ up to very high levels – some say 110 – the Indian IQ in the US and UK was said to be 92-96. These were probably more normal Indians than the highly selected group who came later. In addition, I believe that Pakistani IQ in the UK is ~90 (but someone check for me). I asked a British Pakistani if the UK Pakistanis were highly selected, and he told me it was the opposite, that actually they were mostly from a group regarded as one of the stupidest and most backward people in the land.

Indian, Pakistani, Afghan and Bangladesi IQ in their native lands all tend to converge around 81-83. Yet when you meet these people in the West, they do not appear stupid at all.

The Punjabis I meet around my town are shockingly bright. There is no way on Earth these people have IQ’s of 83. And their children are also doing quite well. Punjabis are interesting in that a lot of the ones I talk to are rather intellectually inclined.

Their kids born in the US are very smart and extremely intellectually inclined. I remember one time I was talking on the phone to someone about my usual abstruse theoretical bullshit that interests almost no one (I believe global race and anthropology). Now the Mexicans around this town and even these Whites here never listen when I talk like this. They completely ignore me. But this Punjabi young man, who I later found out was born in the US, was listening raptly to every word I said. A very intellectually curious and I dare say, even open-minded people.

It is still probably true that the lowest caste types are simply not present in the West. If they were here, possibly they would drag the IQ’s down. But the peoples of the Subcontinent are not stupid people. That’s just my Gestalt intuitive opinion after dealing with so many of them on the web and in meatspace.

If India could ever get its malnutrition under control, it might even see up to a 10 point IQ rise. Even some of India’s social problems may get better with IQ rise, since a lot of India’s social problems seem to be due to people, well, acting stupid! And the lower IQ your country is, the more the people in the country are likely to act like idiots. As your raise your national IQ, I would think that dumb behavior would decline in tandem.

    Punjabis are a resilient bunch that thrive and prosper almost everywhere except their home state – Punjab. Unlike the rest of the country, I can’t stand these motherfuckers – especially the men who will do anything to win your trust but will let you down the moment you start depending on them – they are the biggest DOUCHEBAGS that this country has to produce. The only good thing about Punjabis is that they aren’t a particularly religious people. They are the life of a party, love to drink like crazy freaks and will experiment with drugs. They don’t care about religion at all, and to a great extent, they do not practice the caste system. I can be best friends with a Punjabi jackass when in a bar or similarly hedonistic setting, but I don’t want to see his face again when sober.

    Punjabi women, in total contrast, are, I’d say FAR better human beings than the stupid menfolk. I have been in long term relationships with quite a few, I really know that culture inside out. The only reason I’ll never marry a Punjabi girl, I dont enjoy dealing with their ASSHOLE brothers and male relatives. I actually feel a bit of sympathy for the womenfolk because believe me, Punjabi men are total jackasses. They’re either domineering control freaks who will abuse their wives and children or irresponsible wastrels who mooch off their wives, and will constantly pester them for money. And they will beat them up a little to get what they want. Punjabi women, in fact, have turned into either ardent, empowered, ball-busting feminists who won’t take shit from no man, or are submissive and docile women who EXPECT some abuse in their relationships, and are heavily INURED to domestic violence (read my previous comment in another blog on marital rape).

    Oh, Punjab has by far, the highest incidence of drug abuse in the whole country. According to this report, roughly 4 out of 10 Punjabi men are addicted to hard drugs like heroin, cocaine, ephedrine, methamphetamine, ICE and LSD. That state is really going to Hell in a breadbasket and the Punjabis living in the US or Canada, couldn’t give a damn.

    http://m.hindustantimes.com/chandigarh/four-out-of-10-men-addicted-to-drugs-in-punjab/story-KqqvsrJKCSdkVhfe0XXOwO.html

    A steady supply from across Punjab’s borders is making it next to impossible to cure the state of its deadly addiction to illicit drugs, a Narcotics Control Bureau survey of eight cities including Amritsar and Patiala has shown.

    But recent police seizures have pushed prices of drugs, originating in Afghanistan and routed through Pakistan, to sky-high levels and driven addicts who cannot afford their daily fix to de-addiction centres.

    This is the latest twist in a sorry saga that has ruined the lives of many in the prosperous state. Another central study of the Punjab drug problem shows that four out of ten men in the state are addicted and up to half this number are youth and farmers.

    The analysis shows that heroin is still largely a transit drug accounting for less than 7% of consumers. 15% of the addicts crave for “bhukki” (poppy husk) and 20% need other synthetic drugs, most of which come from pharmaceutical units in Himachal Pradesh, on the state’s eastern border.

    Read: Addicts overcrowd Punjab drug rehab centres


    Anti-narcotic agencies say the primary reasons for high levels of addiction in Punjab are traditional use of opium by farmers, the rising prices of alcohol, easy availability of narcotics from Himachal and a thriving smuggler-police-politician nexus which is hampering enforcement action.

    But Punjab director general of police Sumedh Saini differs from the central assessment. He told HT that since May this year, the authorities had seized 149 kilogrammes of heroin. To date, his men have seized 1,462 kgs of raw material for making synthetic drugs like ICE, registered 9,935 cases under NDPS Act and made 11,490 arrests.

    “We have smashed the cross-border drug transit lines by targeting international drug traffickers. The result is that today intoxicants are not available to the consumers, which has led to some 2,08,171 consumers being treated at the de-addiction centres up to July-end,” he said.

    Heroin production in Afghanistan is expected to touch record levels of 550-600 tonne, of which around 10 tonne to pass through Indian cities.

    According to Indian estimates, pure heroin costs Rs 1-2 lakh per kg in Pakistan. The cost doubles to Rs 3 lakh a kg after it crosses the border to pay for the risks involved. From Punjab to Delhi, the cost reaches Rs 8-10 lakh a kg and further doubles to Rs 16-20 lakh a kg in Mumbai.

    The involvement of cross-border smugglers was evident from seizure of 27 kgs of heroin by Punjab police in the last week of June. The heroin has originated from Lahore-based smugglers identified as Kalu Chairman and Nasir, pushed into Indian territory across the Line of Control in Kashmir and was intercepted while on its way to Jaisalmer. The international cartel is also active on the synthetic drug front with key smugglers based in Chennai and agents active in Himachal Pradesh, Delhi and Haryana. Investigations have shown the cartel procuring drugs from HP and sent to Malaysia and other countries through Chennai.

    According to NCB experts, a national anti- narcotic task force should be formed to tackle drugs for Punjab with a comprehensive statistical survey of addiction in the state.

    “Strong enforcement action is needed against pharmaceutical units in HP with reduction in liquor costs and liberalised bhang and bhukki licenses so that Punjab youth do not move to hard drugs like heroin, cocaine, ephedrine, methamphetamine, ICE and LSD,” said a senior official.

      BTW, for those wondering what “lakh” is, it’s an Indian numerical denomination which stands for “one hundred thousand” or a “tenth of a million”. So, 33 lakhs or lacs is 3.3 million. 100 lakhs equal 1 CRORE which is another common numerical denomination very popular in India.

      Indians rarely talk in millions and millions unless they are reporting news from other countries. Robert, did you know about this interesting bit of trivia about how numbers are counted in India?

    http://www.mercurynews.com/education/ci_28780350/list-california-national-merit-scholar-semifinalists-2015-2016

    has the California National Merit Semifinalist list

    Total 301 Indians
    of which, by translating from name to caste,

    127 Brahmin

    20 Jain merchants

    18 Khatri , Punjabi Merchants ( Porn star Sunny Leone is a Khatri )

    9 Patels ( the motel owners )

    6 Jat Sikhs, ( rural California farmers )

    • shan94

      In the same list, there are 1140 East Asians, and 120 jews, and 33 muslims ( Including South Asian and Mid-east Muslims )

      • 127 brahmins? I won’t believe. Because, I fail to believe that India has so high population of brahmins, that too with high intelligence. If that’s the case, then how come India remained a poor country? Not all brahmins are rich, but if they do have mighty brains, then they should have done superior works.

        P.S: I am also a ‘caste’ brahmin defined by constitution of India.

        • Lin

          IQ to me is largely non-genetic(unless one’s parents are close relatives).Nations with hi-IQ can rightfully take pride of the triumph of their culture/civilization or triumph over Darwinist pressure. And hi-IQ of individuals are indicative of their personal efforts and family upbringing. Unfortunately many,particularly those said to belonged to ‘lo-IQ’ ethnic groups, take it defensively on racial war-footing and ignore social calamity like mal-nutrition…
          Hindus in US claiming high average indian IQ is like Qatarists claiming in front of Sudanese that the average arabs are wealthy. You don’t believe me? See that Rolls Royce in the parking lot ? Its mine !
          However there’s a way out. Lets replace IQ(Intelligence Quotient) by IQ(Indic Quotient) and IQ (intelligent Quotient) by IQ (Islamic Quotient)

    It’s pointless to look at legal immigrants as being representative of their homelands. America is a tough country to legally migrate to. You have to be qualified. The majority of blacks students at many Ivy League schools are Africans. But nobody is saying these students are representative of Africa. I don’t see why it would be any different for Indians.

    • Jason Y

      What we would have with upper caste Indians, probably many of whom have immigrated to western naitons, would be a monopoly on IQ, held as tightly as the royal monopoly on power back in medevil days.

      You see all sorts of Indian professors, businessman, doctors etc.. in the US.. Obviously though, the vast majority of people back in India are poor farmers.

  4. Maybe it differs by caste. Brahmins are possibly a high IQ group like European Jews. Both historically have a high emphasis on literacy, religious training and exegesis. Less capable members might have ‘dropped out’ etc.

    I don’t know how selected British Indians are but I think they perform equal or superior to white British in GCSE’s and have higher average earnings. I don’t think they are highly selected because they were mostly impoverished when they came to Britain in the post war….they weren’t educated professionals. They worked hard and had successful children.

    I don’t think of Indians as intellectually inferior to Europeans.

    • No, brahmins do have intelligence, but a very minority percentage are doing well. And also, brahmins are defined as caste in India, not as a group. So clubbing brahmins in high IQ is a fallacy, and not all brahmins are intelligent, and not everyone, even with surname which defines brahmins in today’s time are brahmins. This is where the confusion starts for brahmins themselves..

      Besides, IQ is not the only factor of a nation or group, though it does reflect the abilities, but there are other factors also. Cognition depends on external factors also, using the previous knowledge to derive the new ones.

      And this is where India declined, as other countries were able to create new knowledge using the existing ones, but India never did. They just stagnated, and with this stagnation, India was not able to move ahead.

      And where does the knowledge gets created? In universities. It is the university where mind thrives. Chanakya was professor of Takshallia University which played a prominent role in Mauryan empire’s statecraft, and so did oxford university in britain’s role to emerge as global superpower. And there was another german professor who chartered out how democracy must function, which is the basis of USA/UK/Germany in today’s time. But India did not create sufficient universities compared to the population which it has. And on the contrary, only handful of select institutes such as IIT/IIM are used as a symbol of elitism by middle class.

  5. Jason Y

    Not sure of Rober’s assumption that IQ is causing the problem is accurate. Actually, more fault could be put on the religion, Hinduism, and the Islam in the nation isn’t helping much either.

    Perhaps they are dumb, not cause of IQ but a dumb enviornment that is shaped by backward ideas. Did a low IQ cause Hinduism or Islam? That’s debateable, as a lot of very intellegent people belong to those faiths.

    • Jason Y

      Looking at the poor white culture of some on the USA would be another example. No doubt a lot of them are smart, but it doesn’t stop them from smoking 5 packs of cigarettes around 2 year olds everyday, nor does it keep many of them (the ones who won’t work) from turning into theives and swindlers. Even the ones who work, and that’s commendable, still will smoke around children daily.

    • Jason Y

      As I was saying with some poor whites, a high or reasonable IQ doesn’t always translate to good morals. Some of the most lazy parasitic people imaginable, as well as abusive of children, are smart people.

      For instance, I know this one white guy who won’t work or go to school, but rather sits around all day and drinks beer and watches TV (often educated shows like Bill Maher or the History channel). He won’t pay for his rent, nor his sattelite TV, only parastically living off of his wife’s mom, who has a pension from her dead military husband.

      Maybe occasionally he will do odd jobs around his wife’s mom’s house, but really I don’t buy that he’s earning his keep. It just seems like another swindler attempt, and a lot of the family agrees.

  6. Robert

    IQ in India, as Steve correctly points out, is a function of caste. The upper castes have historically monopolized literacy and denied the lower castes opportunities. Even a cursory overview of India’s economy today proves this. I had a posted a link a while ago about the richest Indians and their caste here. This IQ advantage also applies to Muslims who were converted from the upper castes of Hinduism.

    • Jason Y

      Most of the above statement also is an affirmation of the liberal position on US civil rights,and it’s is very correct indeed.

      Of couirse, the situation with IQ could have a large genetic component, make make no bones about it, the upper caste (as well as the so called upper caste in the USA) have done all they can to make the environment bad (at least until Civil Rights came into being).

    • shan94

      Most Indian muslims are from lower caste converts – very few brahmins or merchants converted

      In the 2016, California National Merit Semifinalist list, there are 300 Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, of which 125 brahmins,

      whereas total muslims, ( south Asian + middle east ) = 33

  7. Jason Y

    What IQ is needed to read stereo instructions? At university, even some professor made texts are difficult to read, not to mention standard math textbooks etc.. Can super smart people with IQs of 150 or higher read these books?

    In reality, everything at university is easy stuff, but it’s all written in stereo instructions that have to be deciphered.

  8. afghanrefugee

    The Punjabis of the west are Khatris and Sikhs, these people aren’t that dumb, the dumb Punjabis are usually Jat people. Then again, the most warlike people of Punjab are also Jats too.

    • pepperroncini

      Sikh is a religion; there are Jat sikhs, just as there are Jat Hindus. Sikh miliatancy against the Indian government was mostly Jat Sikhs.

  9. pepperroncini

    ” That state is really going to Hell in a breadbasket and the Punjabis living in the US or Canada, couldn’t give a damn.”

    Why would they give a dam ; they like most Indians in the West only care about their own caste and clan and not the Punjabi community as whole back in India. It’s a bit like wondering why Sunni Muslim Arabians don’t care about Kurds or Christians in the MidEast.

    The average IQ at 42 locations of India is 86.41 IQ. With 9/42 IQ samples done in urban areas like Chennai. Note that Delhi is considered as rural area in below calculations as IQ data used for Delhi is in slum area of Delhi, or Nazafgarh (a village outside Delhi) and a hospital where 72% admits where rural.

    IQ of urban areas of India based on the IQ data available is: 93 IQ.
    IQ of rural areas of India based on the IQ data available is: 85 IQ.

    India is 30% urban and 70% rural.

    Calculating on urban/rural divide of India, average IQ of India is 87.4 IQ.

    As many of the data-set is on fluoride IQ studies on India, IQ of Fluoride free regions is also desired.

    IQ of fluoride free regions of India based on IQ data available is 88.73 IQ (rural).

    Studies showing mal-nourishment and IQ,

    http://heapol.oxfordjournals.org/content/17/4/420.full.pdf+html

    This is the only study showing mal-nourishment effects on IQ.

    IQ of malnourished kids is 10 points below at 83 IQ v/s healthy kids having same socio-economic status is 93 IQ.

    India faces 40% mal-nourishment. So, average IQ of 40% of India’s population is down by 10 IQ points.

    Which will put average IQ of India down by 4 IQ points due to mal-nourishment.

    So, a combined effect of fluoride and mal-nourishment is bringing IQ of India down by 8 IQ points.

    I conclude that average IQ of India will be 95 IQ on removal of fluoride and mal-nourishment from a current estimate of 87 IQ based on rural/urban IQ analysis on India.

    For any further improvements, India may have to switch to meat based diets, putting itself at par with Europe on iodine consumption status which will put India at par with Europe on average IQ (97).

    Removal of Iodine Deficiency can push it further in low 100 range.

    IQ of India by caste:-

    There is no major differences between Indian castes and IQ results.

    https://books.google.co.in/books?id=9tZ4AgAAQBAJ&pg=PA16&lpg=PA16&dq=chopra+iq+difference+between+castes&source=bl&ots=mUJt4iGaiY&sig=K5__8u3gFJA4AG6yXxjnwnzm4Xk&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjUm83W_MbQAhUEQI8KHW–DpEQ6AEIOjAC#v=onepage&q=chopra%20iq%20difference%20between%20castes&f=false

    Page 16.

    This book covers several IQ samples of India by caste.

    There is no major differences between Indian castes. As per IQ tests done.

    On non-verbal IQ tests (Raven’s Progressive Matrices), there are no significant differences among Indian castes.

    As it is observed via IQ testing that Vaishyas have higher non-verbal IQ than Kshatriya who have higher non-verbal IQ than Brahmins followed by SCs.

    Rather the difference between Vaishyas and Brahmins on non-verbal IQ tests (as per IQ research) is same as the difference between Brahmins and Scheduled Castes.

    Secondly, the differences among Indian castes is estimated to be less than 3 IQ points on non-verbal IQ tests.

    However on verbal IQ tests, the difference is 11 IQ points.

    Some conclusions that I draw from the IQ data of India and Richard Lynn’s work on Indian states:-

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3c4TxciNeJZQlIxM3EwSXg4REk/view

    Uttar Pradesh has the highest non-verbal IQ in India:-

    If you read Richard Lynn’s data on Indian states. Uttar Pradesh has highest T2 score (score for 3rd grade kids in maths, closely related to IQ) for any state in India.
    That’s full one standard deviation above Delhi. And 0.6 standard deviation above average Indian.

    Given the fact that Orissa scored 404 on TIMSS and Rajasthan scored 382 on TIMSS 2003, I can deduce TIMSS score of Uttar Pradesh to be around 460. Which has probably risen since 2003.

    In recent IQ samples on Uttar Pradesh, average IQ is around 100. With 62 pc mal-nourishment and 24% fluoride contaminated districts.

    Higher average IQ of Uttar Pradesh is also visible in New Delhi (neighboring region of UP).

    Homeless people in Delhi in areas near UP have higher IQ than top class families in South West Delhi (bordering Rajasthan).

    This is evident from IQ samples:-

    Study 1 in Nand Nagari, Delhi (region bordering Uttar Pradesh):-

    http://heapol.oxfordjournals.org/content/17/4/420.full.pdf+html

    IQ of kids of slum dwellers in New Delhi living in plot area is 92.4. And shanty houses/homeless is 89.4.

    IQ of kids who have attended schools is 96.7 (plot area) and 93.2 (shady houses)

    Study 2 (Dwarka, region bordering Rajasthan):-

    Cited by Lynn:-

    https://lesacreduprintemps19.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/lynn-race-differences-in-intelligence.pdf

    Page 60:-
    Row 3 gives an IQ of 93 for 14-year-old students at St. Xavier’s School in Delhi.

    So, top 1% of people on socio-economic status in West Delhi (St.Xavier kids, bordering Rajasthan and Haryana) have a lower IQ than bottom 1% of East Delhi (homeless people near UP border).

    This difference is attributed to higher average IQ in Uttar Pradesh and lower average IQ in Haryana and Rajasthan. A gap as big as 11 IQ points currently.

    IQ in Uttar Pradesh is high only in River facing areas:-

    http://img.asercentre.org/docs/Publications/ASER%20Reports/ASER%202014/District%20Estimates/uttarpradesh.pdf

    This document covers district wise reading and maths score in districts in Uttar Pradesh.

    Average reading and maths score of districts that are near Ganga river is much higher than off shore areas near Himalyan mountain.

    Due to the same, average IQ in Uttarakhand (a hilly area near Uttar Pradesh) is below national average as shown by Richard Lynn.

    This is because historically the smartest people in India settled at or around Ganga river in Nothern India.

    Brahmins in UP:-

    UP has 12% Brahmins. Population of UP is 200 million which means that 50% of Brahmins in India (25 million) live in Uttar Pradesh.

    The higher IQ of Brahmins in USA is wrongly interpreted as a caste difference. The reality is that people in Uttar Pradesh have higher IQ than rest of Indian states (irrespective of caste). And it just has 50% of Brahmin population.

    This is wrongly interpreted on HDB that “Brahmins have higher average IQ” which is actually “UP has higher average IQ”.

    Other North Indian states:-

    Jammu and Kashmir:-

    IQ in Jammu and Kashmir is the lowest in India. This is also confirmed by Richard lynn’s work.

    Lower IQ in J&K has nothing to do with location. Rather, J&K is a disputed territory and a constant war zone between India and Pakistan.

    Due to terror activites, it has drained all the cognitive elites from J&K to Punjab and Himachal Pradesh.

    As a result, IQ in Punjab is close to 90 as measured by IQ data above.

    And is above national average as measured by Lynn’s recent publication on India.

    Cognitive drain from Pakistan:-

    At the time of independence, very large proportion of cognitive elites moved from Pakistan to India. This can be seen here:-

    http://www.oldindianphotos.in/2009/10/mass-migration-during-independence-of.html

    7 million people in Punjab, India came from Pakistan in 1947.

    As mostly rich and cognitive elites migrated from Pakistan, the average IQ in Punjab is higher than Harayana and Himachal Pradesh (other regions in North India).

    Low IQ in Rajasthan:-

    IQ in Rajasthan is much lower than national average. Average IQ in Rajasthan based on IQ data above is only 83.

    This is also confirmed by TIMSS 2003 where average score for Rajsthan was only equivalent to 83 IQ.

    This is also confirmed by Lynn’s work:-

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3c4TxciNeJZQlIxM3EwSXg4REk/view

    Where Rajsthan underscores average Indian by 0.2 standard deviation or 3 IQ points.

    However, Rajasthan faces highest fluoride contamination in India as per national data:-

    http://www.indiaenvironmentportal.org.in/files/file/State-wise%20Districts%20with%20Fluoride%20and%20Arsenic%20Contaminated%20Groundwater.pdf

    Around 91% districts in Rajasthan are fluoride contaminated v/s 48% all over India.

    So, IQ in Rajasthan has the highest scope of IQ gains.

    IQ in Punjab is higher than IQ in Chandigarh.

    Based on IQ samples above, IQ in Punjab is 90.52.

    IQ in Chandigarh is 88.51.

    If you look at the IQ paper on Chandigarh as cited above, they have tested close to 2400 kids randomly in 33% schools and have covered all kids in Chandigarh.

    If you look at Richard Lynn’s work on Indian states:-

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3c4TxciNeJZQlIxM3EwSXg4REk/view

    Punjab scores around 253, 3 points above national average.

    Chandigarh scores around 247, 3 points below national average.

    The difference between Punjab and Chandigarh is 0.12 standard deviation. Which is close to 1.8 IQ points.

    So, the IQ data on India and recent tests by Lynn show shocking consistency point by point.

    Chandigarh is capital on Punjab. But has a lower IQ as Punjab pulls cognitive elites from J&K (war zone). So, cognitive clustering explains this trend.

    IQ in Gujarat:-

    Based on 4 IQ data on Gujarat as cited above done in 8 different locations, the average IQ was 91.85.

    IQ data in Gujarat is done in Kachh and Ahmedabad districts. District wise reading and maths score is also available:-

    http://img.asercentre.org/docs/Publications/ASER%20Reports/ASER%202014/District%20Estimates/gujarat.pdf

    Average test score for Kachh and Ahmedabad is 59.7 percentile reading and 23.75 maths.

    Average for Gujarat is 57 reading and 29 maths.

    So, reading scores are higher while maths score are lower.

    Based on this, I estimate that Gujarat will be much higher on maths and much lower on reading. As compared to the IQ of Kuchh and Ahmedabad, averaging at 91.85 IQ.

    5.25 percentile change will cause IQ jump by 2 on normal distribution, putting Gujarat non-verbal IQ at 93.85.

    2.7 percentile dip will cause IQ dip by 1, putting Gujarat verbal IQ at 90.

    Based on Lynn’s sample on India:-

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3c4TxciNeJZQlIxM3EwSXg4REk/view

    Average IQ in Gujarat is marginally higher than Chandigarh which scores 88.5 IQ based on very reliable IQ sample including large no. of kids.

    Note that IQ of India will be just 1 IQ points higher than IQ in Chandigarh at 89.5 IQ (verbal and non-verbal). Based on the IQ sample on Chandigarh and normalizing it to Richard Lynn’s work.

    Maths score of Gujarat is 262 while reading score of Gujarat is 247.

    Maths score is higher than national average by 4 IQ points. At 93.5 IQ.

    Reading score is same as national average at 89.5 IQ.

    So, you have perfect estimates. Based on Lynn’s work, IQ data on Gujarat, district wise reading and maths score in Gujarat.

    IQ in Madhya Pradesh:-

    IQ of Madhya Pradesh based on IQ data is 85.3 IQ.

    If you look at district wise reading and maths score in MP:-

    http://img.asercentre.org/docs/Publications/ASER%20Reports/ASER%202014/District%20Estimates/madhyapradesh.pdf

    Shivpuri and Bhopal where IQ tests were conducted show same maths scores as average for Madhya Pradesh.

    Average maths score is same for (Bhopal+Shivpuri average) and rest of MP.

    So, IQ of MP will be 85.3 maths IQ.

    Based on Lynn’s data on India the average score in MP is 239 maths. 0.22 standard deviation below average Indian.

    So, average IQ of India projected from IQ and Lynn’s data on MP will be 88.6 maths IQ.

    Which is consistent with IQ projection to rest of India from Punjab, Gujarat, Chandigarh, etc. to rest of India based on Lynn’s work, IQ data on India and district wise reading and maths scores.

    IQ in West Bengal:-

    There are two districts where IQ tests are done in West Bengal. First one is Bankura district where average IQ in 100.15 in optimum conditions and 84.15 in un-optimum (fluoride) conditions.

    Average IQ of Bankura district is 92.15 IQ.

    Second one is mostly done in 24 North Paragnas in 3 government schools where average IQ is 86.325 IQ.

    District wise reading and maths results in West Bengal are also available:-

    http://img.asercentre.org/docs/Publications/ASER%20Reports/ASER%202014/District%20Estimates/westbengal.pdf

    Bankura has 51.7 percentile kids accomplishing maths task. And 59.5 on reading.
    North Parag average is 67.6 reading. And 45.1 on maths.

    However, iodine study as cited above is only done in government schools. And it is well known that kids in private schools in India show higher IQ.

    So, IQ in Bankura district is closer to 89 IQ as low side sampled IQ shows 86.325.

    Average maths score of West Bengal will be marginally above the average in North Parag, and 2 IQ below Bankura as difference between average score for WB and average score for Bankura is 6 percentile which is 2 IQ.

    Average IQ in West Bengal will be 90.2 IQ.

    Based on Lynn’s work:-

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3c4TxciNeJZQlIxM3EwSXg4REk/view

    Average maths score of West Bengal is 260.5. Around 3 IQ above national average.

    So, you have good consistency with IQ data. That average India will score around 87-90 IQ.

    Same projections from IQ data in Punjab, Chandigarh, MP and Gujarat to rest of India based on average state wise score and district wise reading and maths score.

    Average IQ in Kolkata:-

    Kolkata had 2 IQ samples. One cited by Lynn and one other cited above, both show average IQ of 87. With good enough sample size.

    In second sample, 57% kids were undernourished. And 22% population was above 120 IQ.

    This is because Kolkata is a major city and pulls in top class immigrants from all over India.

    I conclude that long term Kolkata will be close to 100 IQ. As 57% undernourishment will push the average IQ by good amount, 6 points at the bare minimum and Kolkata will keep pulling high skilled immigrants from all over India.

    IQ in Orissa:-

    No IQ data.

    Orissa participated in TIMSS 2003 and average score was 404. England on which IQ is generally normalised scored 492 same year.

    Rajasthan scored 384.

    Lynn’s work shows that:-

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3c4TxciNeJZQlIxM3EwSXg4REk/view

    Mean maths score in Orissa is 247.5. And Rajasthan is 242.

    Orissa is 0.12 standard deviation above Rajasthan or 2 IQ.

    So, IQ in Orissa is close to 86 at the moment. And is also confirmed by TIMSS 2003 score on Orissa.

    Average score in Orissa is below average Indian as per Lynn, etc. by 1 IQ point.

    So, again you get the same IQ projection that average Indian will score 87-90 IQ.

    IQ in Karnataka:-

    Average IQ in Karnataka based on IQ samples cited above is 80.15 IQ.

    Average IQ was done in 2 villages in Devangree, 3 villages in Mysore, 2 villages in Bagalkot and in a suburb in Bellary.

    In Bellary sample, only Scheduled Tribes were selected.
    Bellary showed IQ of 100.6 for healthy group (non-stunted). And 6 points below for stunted group.

    As Bellary has appx. 60% under-nourished, average IQ is close to 96. As test was done on WISC, both verbal and non-verbal IQ is reported.

    In Devangree, two government schools were selected as mentioned in IQ sample above. The average IQ is close to 79.9 non-verbal IQ. As government schools show lower IQ and is a downward sample, the average IQ is likely to be close to 82.9 non-verbal IQ.

    In Mysore, both government and normal schools were selected and average IQ is close to 81.3 IQ.

    In Bagalkot, the average IQ was found to be 74.4 for non-fluoride group and 64.4 for those facing dental fluorosis. As majority people don’t face dental fluorosis, I will take average IQ to be 72 in Bagalkot, Karnataka.

    So, average IQ of these 4 districts is 83 IQ.

    Here are district wise maths result on Karnataka:-

    http://img.asercentre.org/docs/Publications/ASER%20Reports/ASER_2010/KARNATAKA_2010.pdf

    Average maths score for Bagalkot is 19 percentile below average for Karnataka.
    Average maths score for Mysore is 13.25 percentile below average for Karnataka.
    Average maths score for Devangree is 12.95 percentile below average for Karnataka.
    Average maths score for Bellary is 7.95 percentile below average for Karnataka.

    So, you get consistency that Bellary scores highest among these 4 districts in Karnataka followed by Devangree followed by Mysore with Bagalkot at the bottom. Consistent with IQ data on Karnataka on these 4 districts.

    IQ in Chimoga, Chikmanglur, Chitradurg, Dakshin and Uttar Bidar will be on higher side based on district wise reading and maths score.

    So, all districts where IQ test is done score below Karnataka average on reading and maths.

    To calculate the IQ of Karnataka, I will use normal distribution tool.

    http://www.wolframalpha.com/widgets/view.jsp?id=67817f2e01eecd366e6d73ac7a71bcd1

    Average IQ in 4 districts of Karnataka is 83 with SD of 19. Average Karnataka will score at 64 percentile of these 4 districts based on district wise reading and maths score in Karnataka.

    So, average IQ in Karnataka will be close to 89 IQ. Based on IQ test done in 4 districts and projecting the average to rest of Karnataka based on district wise reading and maths score.

    Lynn’s sample shows:-

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3c4TxciNeJZQlIxM3EwSXg4REk/view

    That average score in Karnataka is 255 on maths. Which is just 0.1 standard deviation above national average.

    So, again you get the same projection that entire India will score 87-90 average IQ.

    Which is consistent if you look into the IQ data on Chandigarh, Punjab, West Benagal, Gujarat, Orissa, Rajasthan and MP and try to find the average IQ of India based on district wise and state wise scores.

    Average IQ in New Delhi:-

    Based on IQ samples in New Delhi in 5 locations, average IQ is 83.

    Study 1 is done on homeless people in East Delhi in area bordering UP. Showing average to be 88 overall and 93 for those kids who attend schools.

    As it is extreme downward sampling of population as they are measuring IQ of homeless people (bottom 1% of socio-economic status), average in East Delhi will 8 points higher at 96 IQ.

    Study 2 cited above is on government schools showing average IQ to be 77.2. Average will be 80.2 as government schools score 3 points below average population.

    Study 3 is cited by Lynn showing average IQ of 93 on upper end population on socio-economic status. Average will be 8 points below as mentioned by Lynn in his book. So, average IQ is close to 85 in West Delhi.

    Study 4 shows average of 80.

    So, average IQ of Delhi will be close to 85.5 based on IQ samples.

    As per Lynn:-

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3c4TxciNeJZQlIxM3EwSXg4REk/view

    Delhi scores 240.5 maths score. 0.2 standard deviation below average Indian. Or 3 IQ points.

    So, average IQ of India will be 87-90 range based on IQ samples in Delhi and projecting it to rest of India based on state wise scores.

    IQ in Chennai and Tamil Nadu:-

    IQ in Chennai is 96 as measured by IQ samples. IQ sample on Chennai showing average IQ of 98 is even more reliable as they are randomly testing large number of kids in all zones of Chennai.

    There are no IQ samples on Tamil Nadu.

    To see average IQ in Tamil Nadu, I had to look at average score of Tamil Nadu in ASER, Lynn’s work and PISA.

    PISA score was 351 maths, 337 reading. At 77.5 maths IQ, 75.6 verbal IQ.

    Lynn showed average score of 257 maths, 249 reading. And is 2.1 non-verbal IQ above average Indian and same at verbal IQ.

    Based on IQ data all over India; that would transform to 90.6 maths IQ, 88.5 verbal IQ.

    As Lynn’s sample is in 2015 while PISA sample is in 2010, I had to see trends over time to see if average score for Tamil Nadu has actually risen from 2010 to 2015 as suggested by two data sets.

    http://img.asercentre.org/docs/Publications/ASER%20Reports/ASER%20TOT/State%20pages%20English/tamilnadu.pdf

    This is a document that captures scores of Tamil Nadu over time.

    Class 5 reading score (2006):- Tamil Nadu: 29.2, All India: 53.1
    Class 5 maths score(2007):- Tamil Nadu: 17.5, All India: 42.5

    A class 5 student in 2006 will be class 9 student in 2010, that is sampled by PISA.

    In 2014:-

    Class 3 reading score(2014):- Tamil Nadu: 37.9, All India: 40.3
    Class 5 reading score (2014):- Tamil Nadu: 46.9, All India: 48.1

    Class 3 maths score(2014):- Tamil Nadu: 24.3, All India: 25.4
    Class 5 maths score(2014):- Tamil Nadu: 25.8, All India: 26.1

    So, in 2010 the average score in Tamil Nadu for 15 yo should be 24.5 percentile below national average in 2010. 23.9 percentile below on reading. And 25 percentile below on maths. Based on state wise reading and maths score.

    PISA showed 77.5 maths IQ, 75.6 verbal IQ. In Tamil Nadu. SD of IQ was 17 in PISA of TN.
    Average score for all India average is 25 percentile higher on maths, 23.9 percentile higher on reading. As compared to TN. Based on state wise reading and maths results.

    Using normal distribution calculator, average IQ of India extrapolating from PISA of TN will be 86.5 verbal IQ, 89 non-verbal IQ.

    So, you get the same IQ projection on India that average IQ is 87-90 based on all IQ and test data on India (TIMSS, PISA, IQ reports).

    Average scores for Tamil Nadu has increased and can be seen in ASER link of TN. And in 2015, the scores are same as national average in 2015 as can be seen in Lynn’s work.

    Average IQ in Maharashtra:-

    Average IQ in Pune based on IQ samples is 92.33.
    To extrapolate it to rest of Maharashtra, I will use the district wise maths scores in Maharashtra:-

    Average score in Pune is 9.75 percentile higher than average for Maharashtra.

    9.75 percentile change in mean score will decrease IQ to 88.6 based on normal distribution calculator.

    Based on Lynn’s sample, average maths score in Maharashtra is 256.5. Only 1.9 IQ above average Indian.

    So, projecting average IQ sample in Pune to all India average based on state and district wise reading and maths score will result in average IQ of 86.7 IQ in India.

    Average IQ in Andhra Pradesh:-

    Average IQ in Andhra Pradesh is 80.6 based on 4 IQ samples cited above.

    Average IQ is 85 in fluoride free villages and 76 in severe fluoride conditions.

    Nalgonda district is chosen for conducting IQ tests.

    As severe fluoride conditions is rare in nalgonda district, I will take average IQ of 82-83 in Nalgonda.

    To extrapolate IQ in Nalgonda to average in Andhra Pradesh, I will use district wise maths scores:-

    http://img.asercentre.org/docs/Publications/ASER%20Reports/ASER%202014/District%20Estimates/andhrapradeshtelangana.pdf

    Nalgonda is below average for Andhra Pradesh by 2.7 percentile.

    2.7 percentile is 1 IQ points.

    So, average IQ in Andhra Pradesh is 83-84 IQ.

    As per Lynn’s sample, average maths score of Andhra Pradesh is 0.2 standard deviation below average of India.

    So, average IQ of India based on IQ samples in Andhra Pradesh and extrapolating it using district and state wise score is 86-87.

    So I conclude that all psychometric data on India points to average IQ in 86-90 range. As of 2016.
