Correlation between relatives in one or more risk factors for a disease will contribute to the risk in relatives of an affected individual, irrespective of the cause(s) of the correlation.
In this paper, a model is proposed to quantify the relation between 1) the correlation (p) between a random pair of relatives in a quantitative risk factor, 2) the dependence of the probability of being affected on a risk factor, assumed to be a logistic function and summarized by a risk ratio (RR) between upper and lower quartiles, and 3) the resultant disease association between relatives, represented as an odds ratio.
