Researcher Contribution: SSGAC Polygenic Scores for Educational Attainment (Phase 3)

This researcher contribution consists of a .txt file and related documentation. The .txt file contains polygenic scores for educational attainment constructed for Lee et al.'s (2018) prediction analyses of European-ancestry HRS respondents who provided salivary DNA between 2006 and 2008. Additional methodological information is available in the documentation.
