To visualize the sub-haplogroup composition of any cluster using this interactive chart, close the haplogroup menu by clicking on the downward arrow next to the word 'Compare', and then open the list of clusters by clicking on the sideways arrow next to the word 'Cluster'. Select the name of the cluster you wish to view from the list (scroll down to see all clusters) and then select "All" from the pop-up. The chart will display global population numbers within the cluster. Cursor over the chart to see details about the compositions. Other data explorations are available. Return to the entry screen by refreshing the window.
Please note that population numbers shown for each country are calculated by multiplying the country's total population (both male and female) by the y-dna percentages reported in the field study papers. Since y-dna is only expressed in males, the actual y-dna population in each country is roughly 1/2 of the population number shown.

Cluster Sub-Haplogroup Compositions

Data Sources and Notes

The charts on this page depict haplogroup data for the numerically largest ethnic groups in the world. 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: 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.
