Sibling and twin studies provided evidence of familial aggregation of criminal activity and suggested that genetic factors account for approximately 40–50% of the variance in transmission. Two recent large twin studies estimated heritabilities of 37–57% for 5 kinds of aggressive behaviors, and 67% for antisocial behavior.
