Results from multiple regression analyses for a cohort of 16,959 females and 12,178 males born between 1925 and 1965, provided for the entire cohort and for the females and males analyzed separately. The regression uses weights that are inversely proportional to the probability that a person will be included in the regression. Standard errors and P values are empirically determined based on 10,000 simulations. The estimated effects presented here are statistical; they do not imply causation, as the results could be a consequence of the H2 chromosomes being correlated with some unknown functional variant(s).
