Educational attainment, income, use of social benefits, crime rate and the general socioeconomic factor among 70 immigrant groups in Denmark

Open Differential Psychology, 2014, ISSN: 2446-3884


We obtained data from Denmark for the largest 70 immigrant groups by country of origin. We show that three important socioeconomic variables are highly predictable from the Islam rate, IQ, GDP and height of the countries of origin. We further show that there is a general immigrant socioeconomic factor and that country of origin national IQs, Islamic rates, and GDP strongly predict immigrant general socioeconomic scores.
