aSNPs: RS1042712, RS3769013, RS3769012, RS872151, RS2304371, RS4954445 were all significant at p < 0.05 in unadjusted models and adjustment for ancestry by any method resulted in all p > 0.35. SNP RS11884924 within the lactase gene was not significant p > 0.45 for all association tests.

bLocal PCs are estimated for different combinations of SNPs: 1) all local SNPs (n = 2773); 2) every other SNP (n = 1386) or 3) SNPs with r2 < 0.5 (n = 969).

cLocal PC is estimated from all SNPs in a region.
