This is straight out of my textbook,
The name of the figure is:
Risk of Developing Schizophrenia

Monozygotic Twins: 47%
Offspring of 2 parents with Schizophrenia: 46%
Dizygotic Twins: 18%
Siblings with 1 schizophrenic parent: 17%
Children: 13%
Siblings: 7%
Parents: 6%
Half-Siblings: 7%
Grandchildren: 5%
Nephews/Nieces: 4%
First Cousins (third degree): 3%
Spouses of Patients: 2%
General Population: 1%

Hope that helps

So if you care to find me, look to the western sky.
As someone told me lately, everyone deserves a chance to fly.

Oooh... I have a 5% cahnce of Schizz... Is this doubled if two of my granparents had it?
I also got dementia on the list of possibilities... along with 4 different cancers... looks like I have to try and stay healthy!

Boom! You scream as the light hits you
It radiates throughout your whole soul
Boom! The pain is clarity, it cleanses
And if it still fucking hurts
Then you still fucking know,
That you are still alive
That you are still in control, if you'd only take hold

The chances of having it rise when your family members have it
