A First Study of Parent-Child Resemblance in Intelligence


by Harold E. Jones - 1928

The resemblance of parents and children in certain physical traits (stature, span, forearm, eye-color) has been reported by Pearson as averaging approximately .50 in terms of coefficients of correlation. Nearly identical coefficients have been obtained for parent-progeny resemblance in the coat color of animals and in the body characteristics of insects and other lower forms. The present report deals with the resemblance of parents and children in mental test traits. The statistical analysis is limited to correla- ctions; other modes of treatment of the data will be undertaken in a later article.
