Are Humans Getting More Intelligent? New Study Confirms Rising Global IQs

Is human intelligence declining, or are IQs on the rise? A new study conducted by psychologists at King's College London suggests that we're getting smarter, but just how much smarter depends on what part of the world you're talking about.

To conduct the study, published in the March-April 2015 issue of the journal Intelligence, the researchers looked at 64 years of IQ score data for more than 200,000 people living in 48 countries. Overall, they found that global IQ scores have risen by an average of 20 points since 1950.
