  1. 1r = rank correlation between EVALMACE and EVALW, EVALBLNN, EVALBLRE, EVALBLR or EVALBL; 2MSE = mean squared error expressed as a percentage of the average internal mean squared error; 3a = regression coefficient (SE in parentheses) and R2 = coefficient of determination of the regression of MACE EBV on EBV estimated by EVALW, EVALBLNN, EVALBLRE, EVALBLR or EVALBL; 4REtot = total amount of record equivalents; 5REL = average reliability (SD in parentheses).
