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.

PSS001057 All individuals suffered from hay fever and no other allergic diseases. All individuals were identified from a questionnaire. To identify individuals who reported suffering specifically from hay fever, information reported in the verbal interview (field 20002) and ICD10 codes (fields 41202 and 41204) were considered, as described for asthma 14,474 individuals,

PSS001055 All individuals suffered from asthma and no other allergic diseases. All individuals were identified from a questionnaire. Asthmatic individuals were those with (i) both a report of “Asthma” in field 6152 of questionnaire (self-reported medical conditions, specifically the question “Has a doctor ever told you that you have had any of the following conditions?”) and a code for asthma in field 20002 (verbal interview), or alternatively, an ICD10 code for asthma in fields 41202 (Diagnoses–main ICD10) or 41204 (Diagnoses–secondary ICD10); and (ii) no report of COPD in fields 6152 or 20002, nor of other respiratory diseases in field 20002. 22,029 individuals,
