  • Introduction. Karlsson Linnér et al.1 conducted genome-wide association analyses of general risk tolerance (n = 975,353), adventurousness and risky behaviors in the driving, drinking, smoking and sexual domains. In separate hold-out cohorts, they analyzed the predictive power of polygenic scores derived from the genome-wide association study (GWAS) estimates. Due to data access restrictions, it is not possible to release summary statistics for more than 10,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Therefore, researchers with access to the individual-level genotype data cannot reproduce the polygenic scores that were used in the paper from publicly available summary statistics ( As a partial remedy, we are releasing the polygenic scores that were used in the paper’s prediction analyses in the Add Health and UKB-siblings cohorts to researchers (but due to the restrictions, we cannot release the underlying SNP-level weights themselves).
