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.

PSS000859 Data and diagnoses on site-specific incident cancers were provided by the National Health Service Information Centre for participants from England and Wales (follow-up through March 31, 2016) and by the NHS Central Register Scotland for participants from Scotland (follow-up through October 31, 2015). Cancers were coded by the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) or the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10).
