Variance” is a technical term, referring to the average of the squared differences of each individual value from the mean population value. The genetic variance is the proportion of total variance attributable to genetic difference in a population. When carried out under the rubric of genetics, twin and adoption studies can, at best, show the extent of heritability of a trait in a given population in a given common environment.
