Data from: Age and gender differential relationship between employment status and body mass index among middle aged and elderly adults: a cross-sectional study

Jin-Won Noh, Jinseok Kim, Jumin Park, In-Hwan Oh & Young Dae Kwon
Objective: To determine the influence of age and gender respectively on the association between employment status and body mass index (BMI) in Korean adults using a large, nationally representative sample. Design: Cross-sectional study. Setting: South Korea. Participants: 7,228 from fourth wave of the Korean Longitudinal Study of Aging (KLoSA), the survey short form and year: “KLoSA 2012”. Main outcome measures: body mass index. Results: BMI among the employed was higher than among the unemployed for...

Data from: Using the generalized index of dissimilarity to detect gene-gene interactions in multi-class phenotypes

Jaeyong Yee, Yongkang Kim, Taesung Park & Mira Park
To find genetic association between complex diseases and phenotypic traits, one important procedure is conducting a joint analysis. Multifactor dimensionality reduction (MDR) is an efficient method of examining the interactions between genes in genetic association studies. It commonly assumes a dichotomous classification of the binary phenotypes. Its usual approach to determining the genomic association is to construct a confusion matrix to estimate a classification error, where a binary risk status is determined and assigned to...
