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.

PSS000292 Composite end point of cardiovascular events was defined as myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, and death from coronary heart disease. Death from coronary heart disease was defined on the basis of codes 412 and 414 (ICD-9) or I22–I23 and I25 (ICD-10) in the Swedish Cause of Death Register. Myocardial infarction was defined on the basis of codes 410 and I21 in the International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision and 10th Revision (ICD-9 and ICD-10), respectively. Ischemic stroke was defined on the basis of codes 434 or 436 (ICD-9) and I63 or I64 (ICD-10). Median = 10.6 years
