Parent-child correlations and heritability of stature in Philadelphia Black and White children 6 to 12 years of age



Parent-child correlations and heritability of stature in Philadelphia Black and White children 6 to 12 years of age



Human Biology 48(3): 475-486



Parent-child correlations for stature and midparent-child regression for stature are considered in a cross-sectional sample of 806 Philadelphia black (n = 422) and white (n = 384) school children 6 to 12 years of age. Children's statures were measured, while parental heights were reported on questionnaires.
