Compared to some past customers' old results (around 2007) there were less states in their world matches (example: white-Alabama, black-Florida or Hispanic-Texas). It use to be mainly countries. Is it possible to have the test done with the states removed?

No, we report the populations as they are named in the database.

It looks like African Americans or people who are more African get more state matches than other races. Is that because of sample sizes? If it can't be removed could it be lengthened to get a broader picture?

That's because there are a lot of African states.
