Description

Example dataset from the program 'DFREML', developed by Karin Meyer. Known to 'DFREML' as the 'Example 1' dataset. A univariate dataset with 282 individuals in a 2 generation pedigree with full-sib families.

Usage

1

Format

Id

Identifier for individuals

SId

DId

Identifier for dams of individuals

Sex

A factor: Sex of each individual

Gen

A numeric vector: generation number of each individual

Weight

A numeric vector: weight in ? of each individual

Details

Karin Meyer gives the following description of these data:

“ .... The test data given is that used by Meyer(1989) to illustrate univariate REML estimation via a derivtive-free algorithm. They are simulated records for a trait with a phenotypic variance of 100, direct heritability of 0.40, maternal heritability of 0.20, maternal-direct covariance (divided by 100) of -0.05, and a "c-squared" effect of 0.15. Data were generated for 2 generations of animals with a heirarchical full-sib family structure, yielding a total of 282 records and 306 animals in the analysis with generations as the only fixed effect. ”
