The relationship between the general factor of intelligence (g) and handedness is investigated using a combined sample of 23511 respondents from three large databases: the NLSY'79 (US), NLSY'97 (US) and NCDS (UK). Dextrals -- those who use their right hands -- were found to be 1.22 IQ points higher than sinistrals (left handers) after controling for sex and age and correcting for sources of measurement error.
