The study sought to investigate the spatial distribution of children's intelligence as it occured around a single intermediate school. This objective was initially intended to be of an exploratory nature, but was subsequently developed as an alternative methodology for the inadequate studies undertaken by earlier researchers. Two problems were defined for investigation - identification of intelligence regions, and explanation of their occurrence. In solving both problems, deficiencies were revealed in techniques available. The major conclusion from the study is that previous research has made false assumptions about the scale at which intelligence is distributed throughout an urban neighbourhood. This conclusion is worthy of further investigation by more sophisticated analytical techniques than those used in the present study.
