In a cross-sectional Dutch sample the percentage of left-handers writing with their left hand increased from 0% for people of 40 yr and over, to 100% for 14 yr olds and younger. The implications of this result for the use of writing hand as an index for handedness are discussed, and causes for this phenomenon are briefly explored.
