    Let's take the population of Massachusetts: approx 6,600,000

    Now let us assume that their average should be 100, that means the sum of all IQs in Massachusetts should be 660,000,000.

    The total student body enrolled in Harvard and MIT is around 32,000. Let us assume that the average IQ of the students there is 200. This means we need to add 3,200,000 to 660,000,000 to adjust the average.

    The new total IQ should be 663,200,000. Divide this by the population of 6,600,000 and we have their new average IQ: 100.5

    You forgot to add the mystical IQ expasion due to MIT and Harvard's force field

    oh and also some sense of humor

    Multiple variables can cause data to mislead. Until variables are isolated a correlation between two variables can cause associations to appear differently than they truly are. I noticed how there appears to be an association between climate and both IQ and race. This leaves lots of room for interaction between them to cause data to misrepresent.

    Looking back I probably should have said racial correlation.

    -0.08 is almost the same as no correlation. Anything with an absolute value below about .4 or so is weak.

    I can bet they're so dumb they didn't even run a multivariate regression, thus isolating the cross-correlation effects

    Here's something to help you along your way to isolating variables:

    That doesn't isolate any variables.

    Assuming the global chart is accurate it would seem to support the theory that the Flynn effect is caused by improved nutrition.
