The fraction of the replicated simulations, where the estimate of the QTL position was in the correct bracket or in a bracket next to the correct bracket, is shown. The effective size of the population is varied; the number of generations since the mutation at the QTL occurred is 100 or 1030; and the frequency of the QTL in the last generation was >0.1.
↵^{a} In this case, there are 1000 generations at N_{e} =1000 and the last 30 generations are at N_{e} = 100, which may be realistic for livestock populations.
↵^{b} H_{p}(x) denotes that the matrix of (co)variances of haplotype effects is estimated assuming an effective size of x.
