This set of charts shows the world's nations color coded as to the largest haplogroup by population in each country. The first chart uses the set of haplgroups: A1, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, R, S, T. The second chart adds certain major subsets of Haplogroups E, O, and R: A1, B, C, D, E1b1a, E1b1a1a1f1a, E1b1b1a, E1b1b1b, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O2a, O3a, R1a, R1b, S, T. Please note that similarity of color carries no informational meaning (to confirm categorical sameness please hover over the countries and compare the numerical coding). These charts display only categorical information and no relationship between categories or color intensity is attempted or suggested. Following the charts are the table-keys to the data.

Data Sources and Notes
The charts on this page depict haplogroup data for the numerically largest ethnic groups residing in each country. Many interactive ways of looking at the data are available. The complete data file is available in a variety of formats such as CSV, XLS, or MDB.
Haplogroup naming follows the ISOGG 2012 classification system: http://www.isogg.org/tree/index.html. Notes: 1) In the above charts, haplogroup letter statistics include all sub-groups; sub-haplogroup letter statistics include only that sub-group; e.g., a 'G' in the haplogroup chart includes all G sub-branches (M201 marker plus all progeny; G, G1, G2, etc.), while a 'G' in the sub-haplogroup chart includes only the G as a sub-haplogroup (i.e., M201 marker only); 2) Due to varying levels of granularity in the studies combined in these data, there is some ambiguity in the sub-haplogroup results (study X may have taken its haplogrouping to the level of G2a3a, study Y only to G2a, and study Z only to G); the haplogroup results are therefore more definitive than the sub-haplogroup results in the current state of the data. Please see methods page for detailed information about data sources, ambiguities, errors, and risks inherent in this type of study.
