In the standardization sample of the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence – Fourth Edition (WPPSI-IV) in Taiwan, girls at the age of 2:5-3:11 years generally had higher average cognitive abilities than boys but this advantage was not present at the age of 4:0-7:0 years. These results are consistent with other studies reporting that among young children, girls have higher average cognitive abilities than boys. Girls had greater variability than boys in the majority of measures.
