Note - update 2019 december:

AD_sumstats_Jansenetal_2019sept.txt.gz are an updated version of the original summary statistics. In the meta-analysis of the previous version, the UKB dataset was weighted with an incorrect sample size, overestimating it by max 22,246 (5%). This resulted in a slight underestimate of effect sizes and slightly less significant P-values (in the order of the 9th decimal).We have reran the meta-analysis and have uploaded the new summary statistics.
For new analyses we advise to use the updated version of the summary statistics. However, for analyses that have been performed already, we think it is acceptable to work with the previous results. We reran all our functional follow-up results and observed minimal changes, and no alternative conclusions were drawn.
