Getting Started: INBREED Procedure

This section demonstrates how you can use the INBREED procedure to calculate the inbreeding or covariance coefficients for a pedigree, how you can control the analysis mode if the population consists of nonoverlapping generations, and how you can obtain averages within sex categories.

For you to use PROC INBREED effectively, your input data set must have a definite format. The following sections first introduce this format for a fictitious population and then demonstrate how you can analyze this population by using the INBREED procedure.
