[Update January 1, 2017: An earlier version of this article included an estimate for anatomically modern humans that has since been removed]

[Second update January 1, 2017: An earlier version of this article underestimated the IQs of Australoids]

[Third update January 1, 2017: An earlier version of this article underestimated the IQs of H. erectus and chimps]

[Fourth update January 1, 2017: An earlier version of this article overestimated the IQs of Australoids]

[Fifth update Jan 3, 2017: Australoids, Capoids, Pygmies, and Neanderthals have all been removed because of lack of quality evidence]

[Sixth update Jan 17, 2017: Homo erectus and chimpanzees removed because of technical questions]

 

Below is a rough ranking of 16 different populations by estimated genetic IQ.  I should note that many scientists consider all human races to have equal genetic intelligence, and the below numbers would be considered pseudoscience.  All IQs have been rounded to the nearest multiple of 5 for aesthetic purposes.
