Supplementary Material for: Estimating Relative Risks from Significant Family-Based Association Studies

Two approaches are described to estimate relative risks from significant family-based association studies. They can be used to obtain either point estimates or confidence regions. The approaches are evaluated by a simulation study and illustrated by application to a real data set. It is shown that both approaches largely reduce the bias in the relative risk estimates which can occur in case that the significant outcome of the study from which the relative risks are estimated is ignored.
