A shinyapp for the Krummhörn

This is an shinyapp demonstrating the functinality of my {kinlab} package for R for analyzing data from the Krummhörn family reconstitution study.

Consanguinity, fertility and offspring survival

The historical population of the Krummhörn was highly stratified according to socioeconmic groups. While the socioeconomically privileged farmers do generally have a higher probability of having at least one grandchild documented within the stationary part of the population, this reproductive advantage seems to be further increased within consanguineous unions.
