This research was carried out under the auspices of the Social Science Genetic Association Consortium (SSGAC). The SSGAC seeks to facilitate studies that investigate the influence of genes on human behavior, well-being and socialscientific outcomes using large genome-wide association study meta-analyses. The SSGAC also provides opportunities for replication and promotes the collection of accurately measured, harmonized phenotypes across cohorts. The SSGAC operates as a working group within the CHARGE consortium. A full list of acknowledgments is provided in Supplementary Note. Upon publication, results can be downloaded from the SSGAC website ( Data for our analyses come from many studies and organizations, some of which are subject to a MTA, and are listed in the Supplementary Note. We thank Aysu Okbay for conducting the meta-analyses for the SNP polygenic scores. The data were accessed under Section 4 of the Data Sharing Agreement of the SSGAC.
