The S factor in China
Abstract I analyze the S factor in Chinese province-level units using data obtained from Lynn and Cheng (2013) as well as new data obtained from the Chinese statistical agency. I find that S correlates .42 with IQ, Han% with IQ at .59, and Han% with S at .48.
Key words: intelligence, IQ, cognitive ability, S factor general socioeconomic factor, inequality, China, Chinese provinces
