National intelligence (IQ) and outcomes - more info

As promised, here is more information regarding national IQ and various outcome measures. I found some of the articles and have posted links to them. In addition, I found I had omitted an important 2007 article by Lynn and is now included in the list below.

Be aware....the research in this area is not without controversy. Check out the post regarding Lynn's book (IQ and the Wealth of Nations) on this topic at Wikipedia.
