This paper summarizes the results of two studies of the intelligence of Mongolians. Both studies were published in Chinese in Chinese journals that are difficult or impossible for Western scholars to access and read. In both studies the IQ scores of Mongolian children were compared with those of Han Chinese children living in the same communities in Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang Province. The IQ of Mongolian children was found to be approximately 5 IQ points lower than that of Han Chinese children.
