    the steady, and cumulatively very large,  increase of population scores on IQ tests, especially in developed countries, across the last 70-80 years, especially among those in the lower and middle range of scores.  This extremely robust finding raises all sorts of questions about the biological determination of IQ and group differences in scores across time and/or generations.  I intend to write a diary on this in the next few days and will scan Richwine's dissertation to see if he accounts for it in his analysis and interpretation of his data.  If he didn't, then his dissertation is an even bigger POS than just his abstract suggests that it is.
