Update: First, people coming to this weblog for the first time should know that I moderate comments.

So if you leave an obnoxious one it’s basically like an email to me (no one will see it).

I think that’s doable with this data set, but I didn’t see it in the paper (tell me if I’ve missed something).

The phenomenon is simple enough to describe; height and intelligence are both attractive, and even if they are not due to the same genetic loci the pairing of tall and smart results in the correlation between the traits.

When age is controlled, the correlations in different studies range mostly between 0.10 and 0.30, and the average about 0.20.

Studies based on siblings find no significant within-family correlation, and gifted children (who are taller than their age mates in the general population) are not taller than their non-gifted siblings.

Both traits were highly heritable, although there was greater evidence for non-additive genetic effects in males.

After accounting for assortative mating, the correlation between height and IQ was found to be almost entirely genetic in nature.

The data show that taller men have more sexual partners, but the problem here is that taller men have taller daughters, and these daughters are not necessarily so reproductively fit.
