Abstract. The article presents the results of a study of the differences in the level of intelligence in urban districts of the Moscow region and of the factors that determine these differences. The level of intelligence of the districts was assessed based on the data of voluntary Internet testing to assess eligibility for voluntary military service. It is shown that the average IQ of the district negatively correlates (-0.41) with the distance from the main city of the district to Moscow. This is consistent with the data of other authors about the higher IQ in the capitals of some countries compared to the other regions of these countries. It was verified that the factors that determine the dependence of the district’s IQ on the distance to Moscow are the level of intelligence of the district’s population in the past and migrations. To this end, firstly, on the set of 26 districts for which there are estimates of the IQ of the population in the past, it was determined whether the prediction of the IQ of the district based on the estimates of the IQ of the population in the past, migration growth and distance to Moscow was significantly more effective compared to the prediction based on estimates IQ of the population in the past and migration growth, and, secondly, on a set of 41 districts, it was determined whether the prediction of the district IQ in based on migration growth and distance to Moscow is significantly more effective compared to the prediction based on migration growth. In the first case, the addition of the distance to Moscow led only to a marginally significant increase in the prediction efficiency; in the second, the increase in the prediction efficiency was non-significant. Thus, the decisive role of the level of intelligence of the population of urban districts of the Moscow region in the past and migration processes as factors of the modern IQ of districts is shown.
Keywords: intelligence, migrations, urban districts of the Moscow region, district IQ, quality of education.
