Polyzygotic (or fraternal) multiples result from multiple ova of the same menstrual cycle, which are then fertilized to grow into multiples no more genetically alike than ordinary full siblings.
For the < 1% of black or white participants who reported having two or more multiple birth siblings, we combined them with twin birth categories according to the following criteria: monozygotic (all were genetically identical sisters), dizygotic (no sisters that are genetically identical to the participant), or unknown (missing data to categorize multiple births) or polyzygotic (having a genetically identical sister and a non-identical multiple birth sibling).
