This chart allows visualizations of four metrics: 1) the total world population for each ethnic cluster, 2) the percentage of total world population occupied by each ethnic cluster (world total for ethnic cluster/world total population), 3) the total diaspora population for each ethnic cluster, and 4) the diaspora population percentage for each ethnic cluster (diaspora population for ethnic cluster/world total population for same ethnic cluster). In the Atlas, a diaspora is defined as the total population of an ethnic cluster living outside its homeland. The homeland is defined as the state hosting the largest population of that ethnic cluster. The table following the chart shows the homeland states, as defined above, and the homeland populations for each ethnic cluster.

To visualize diaspora population and percentages, select any number of clusters from the drop-down menu. The chart will highlight each of the selected clusters. By moving the cursor over the name of the cluster, the viewer will access the data details. To the left will pop-up the diaspora population total and to the right, on the color scale, will appear the diaspora percentage figure for that ethnic cluster. Other data explorations are available simply by changing map types, data, and other options. Return to the entry screen by refreshing the window.

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: 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.
