Considering IQ does have some genetic correlation, race would influence the results.
HOWEVER, what you should take away from those results is not necessarily what you think.


The IQ is a delicate thing. Most people, whether they want to admit it or not, are just not that intelligent. And it only takes around 45 people of avarage intelligence in Denmark, to bring me within 1 IQ point of them.
So if you fill a stadium with 45000 people. There is potentially 1000 people with an IQ above 140 in the crowd. But if everyone else is of avarage intelligence, you just wont notice them.


To comment on the jewish thing; Israel, who undoubtably has the highest concentration of jews per capita, has an avarage IQ several points lower than many non jewish countries. But no one can deny the brilliance of Einstein, who was of jewish decent. (However, he was also intelligent enough to reject the idea of a personal god. So the jews might not want to claim him. ^^)
When it comes to an avarage, you are usually only as strong as your weakest links. (Or whoever you designate to be your weakest links. With the strict government control of some of the asian countries i doubt they had rural farmers take the tests in equal numbers to the amount of the population they actually make up.)
But Asian countries have, generally, a higher emphasis on education. And i would expect that to show, even, or perhaps even more so, if they tested asians living in the western world.



But i've gone out on a tangent here. Does race affect IQ? Short answer, yes. Genetics will help. If intelligence is a main focus in your society, the smart people will slowly be bred to be more prevalent.
But you can't really use this to generalize too much. The IQ variation within races if huge, and a study like this can't really be used to establish an intellectual master race.

Meh whatever. Your ethnicity doesn't affect your intelligence either.

Nah I think what it is is that in Asian countries the attitude towards education is stronger. By that I mean they take it more seriously. For example in my school being intelligent is uncool, few parents care if their kids do great and generally kids don't really care about succeeding. Even the people in the top classes can get low grades. Parents in England these days need to book their ideas up imo.
That's only a generalisation though and depends on which school u are sent to.

Yeah right...

Give the South East Asians better education and they will catch up with you.

Here are some factors why I don't find that findings unreliable

1. Literacy rate of the countries compared
2. Economic situation of the countries compared
3. Number of respondents from the countries compared that have participated in the survey
4. "QUALITY OF EDUCATION" of the countries compared

Race has nothing to do with intelligence but the ones holding the pen and answering the survey.

Anyways Philippines "was" even once acknowledged to have the highest Quality of Education with brilliant students until its economic downfall. We should rather look upon economic factors before we decide and conclude matter rather than feeding our personal bias. The poorer the nation the lesser quality of education we can expect. That's all!

If you're stupid, you're stupid, and if you're smart, you're smart. It has nothing to do with race. I would say the explanation behind this is that in East Asian countries there's a lot of pressure to succeed in school.

Culture and Education system really helps drive things.

However, I've found that the vast majority of east asians lack a lot of social and emotional intelligence.
