In a representative sample of Swedish male adult MZ, Tienari (1966) did not find a correlation of the adult IQ with birthweight, though there were reported childhood differences in dominance, strength, and school achievement favoring the heavier twin. The author concludes that birth weight influences are of a transient nature and not found in adults. Weight differences seem to affect MZ more than DZ. Kaelberet al. (1969) studied all twin births in four major Boston hospitals during 1952-1960. The children were followed up to the ages of 6-16 years.
McCall et al. (1972) sampled 750 males and 680 females from the second to sixth grades and different school systems in an American state. The authors argue that samples matched for age introduce a bias for large families oflower social class since their children have shorter mean birth intervals than those of smaller families with higher-class background and are consequently more likely to enter a sample. For each subject there was an "early" and a "late" IQ. Using multiple regression and analysis of variance and holding paternal occupation constant, there was no influence of sibship size on IQ either at the same or at variable age levels.
3 Is Lower IQ in Twins Related to Social Background Variables? Husen (1960) compared to a random selection of singletons, 634 twin pairs found among a full age class of 12-year-old Swedish pupils given an achievement test.

Twins' results were, however, normally distributed, which speaks against twin inferiority being caused by an external influence, such as premature birth or brain lesion.
