Since twins (or siblings) come from the same family, this test controls for any shared family effects, such as maternal nutrition, parental education or socio-economic status. 2. A second extension compares associations of differences in size at birth with differences in disease risk in monozygotic (MZ) and dizygotic (DZ) twin pairs.
