From: Genetic analyses of smoking initiation, persistence, quantity, and age-at-onset of regular cigarette use in Brazilian families: the Baependi Heart Study

  1. h2 (s.e.): heritability estimate (standard error); h2 m : heritability estimate for males; h2 f : heritability estimate for females; σ2 g,m : polygenic variance estimate for males; σ2 e,m : environmental variance estimate for males; σ2 g,f : polygenic variance estimate for females; σ2 e,f : environmental variance estimate for females.
