Attempted to develop a way of estimating Wechsler IQs from demographic measures. The 3 summary IQs of the 1955 WAIS standardization sample were regressed on age, sex, race, education, and occupation. The resulting R-2s were .53, .42, and .54 for the Verbal IQ, Performance IQ, and Full Scale IQ, respectively. The 3 regression equations provide actuarial indices of IQ that can be used as estimates of premorbid ability in neuropsychological assessment and research.
