Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences [University of Washington] Working Paper: “Pedigree-free descent-based gene mapping from population samples,” by Chris Glazner and Elizabeth Thompson (WP 201, January 2015, .pdf format, 28p.).

Abstract:

Segments of genome inherited from a common ancestor by multiple individuals are said to be identical by descent (IBD). Modern genetic marker data provide information to infer such segments among members of a population sample, and given a jointly consistent speci cation of IBD, the numerator of a linkage LOD score can be computed. While previous approaches have detected IBD in pairs of individuals, and methods have been proposed to merge IBD estimates from pedigree and population inferences, a linkage analysis requires an IBD estimate jointly consistent among individuals and slowly varying across genome locations; we refer to such an estimate as an IBD graph. In this paper, we develop a method that builds IBD graphs sequentially among individuals from a population sample using either phased or unphased genetic marker data. We show how these estimates provide a form of linkage mapping score, using a permutation approach to normalize the LOD score numerator. We apply the approach to two population samples of closely related individuals

Center for Family & Demographic Research [Bowling Green State University] Working Paper: “Twenty-Five Years Of Change In Repartnering And Stepfamily Formation,” by Karen Benjamin Guzzo (WP2015-17, June 2015, .pdf format, 27p.).

Abstract:

Shifts in union formation and childbearing have altered the prevalence and structure of higher-order unions and stepfamilies over the past few decades. However, data limitations have made it difficult to track trends. Comparing the 2011-2013 cycle of the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) to the 1988 cycle, I produce estimates of repartnering and stepfamily formation among women aged 15-44. The proportion of current unions that are remarriages stayed stable (around 27-28%), but the rise of cohabitation has made women’s union histories more complex. The proportion of current unions that are stepfamilies increased from 24% to 31%, with more cohabiting stepfamilies (rising from 19% to 39% of all stepfamilies). Further, while the majority of remarriages are stepfamilies, the majority of stepfamilies are no longer remarriages. Cohabiting (but not marital) stepfamilies also experienced changes in which partner had children and in shared childbearing. The implications of these changes are discussed.
