Performance Metrics

Disclaimer: The performance metrics are displayed as reported by the source studies. It is important to note that metrics are not necessarily comparable with each other. For example, metrics depend on the sample characteristics (described by the PGS Catalog Sample Set [PSS] ID), phenotyping, and statistical modelling. Please refer to the source publication for additional guidance on performance.

PSS000055 Current asthma status was assessed at ages 9, 11, 13, 15, 18, 21, 26, 32, and 38 years from standardised interviews of study members (or their mothers if the participant was younger than 13 years) done by pulmonary specialists. Current asthma was defined as a diagnosis of asthma in addition to positive symptoms within the past 12 months, including asthma attack, recurrent wheeze (excluding study members reporting only one or two episodes lasting less than 1 h), or medical treatment for asthma. Age at asthma onset was defined as the earliest age at which wheezing symptoms or diagnosis by a physician were recorded. 880 individuals
