Children from poor families are much more likely to have cognitive deficits than their peers from better-off backgrounds. Young people who grow up in poor households consistently score lower on tests of intelligence and executive functioning. These socioeconomic differences are apparent very early in life—as early as two years of age. And being born into economic disadvantage has long-lasting effects on a wide range of outcomes—not only educational achievement, but mental and physical health, antisocial behavior, substance use and abuse, and, of course, earnings. Many factors contribute to intellectual differences between children from different socioeconomic strata. Genes clearly contribute to socioeconomic differences in intelligence, but environmental influences actually may be more important in explaining the relative intellectual deficiencies of children from poorer families.
