    Abstract

    This note examines James Shields' sample of monozygotic twins raised apart to entertain the hypothesis that there is a significant association between the measured IQ of these twins and the order of their birth. A non-parametric test supports this hypothesis and then a linear probability function is estimated that discriminates the effects on IQ of birth order from the effects of birth weight.
