PGS 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.

PSS000053 Participants were classified as having AF if an arrhythmia was present on an ECG obtained at a study visit or encounter with external clinicians, Holter monitoring, or noted in hospital records during a median 9.4 years of follow-up.
  • 580 cases
  • , 4,026 controls
45.9 % Male samples
Other FHS is principally composed of individuals of European ancestry FHS Samples were obtained from the following FHS cohorts: Original, Offspring, and Third Generation. Participants were eligible for inclusion if they were AF free at an average age of 55.
