    Dalton Conley
    New York University and NBER, New York, NY 10003, USA
    J Health Soc Behav 54:109-27. 2013

    Dalton Conley
    Department of Sociology, New York University, New York, NY 10003, USA
    Demography 49:841-55. 2012
    ..We suggest that previous research, which has shown that Vietnam-era veterans experienced significantly higher mortality than nonveterans, might be biased by nonrandom selection into the military and should be further investigated...

    Dalton Conley
    Department of Biology, Center for Genomics and Systems Biology, New York University, New York, NY, USA
    J Hum Genet 59:342-5. 2014
    ..However, when we include this environmental confound in GREML models, heritabilities do not change substantially and thus potential bias in estimates of most biological phenotypes is probably minimal. ..
