Concordance rate

The proportion of a random sample of pairs that are concordant for a trait of interest. A high rate of concordance may be generated in several ways, many of which may result from irrelevant bias; but broadly it is taken as evidence of causal connection (e.g., in the case of identical twins, a genetic component or in spouses of assortative mating).
