Mega Population Score and Ethnic Panel

Postby Spindoc1000 » Mon Jun 06, 2016 10:20 pm

What does it mean that my Jewish Mega Population score is very high at 7.384E+10, but my Marker Ethnic Panel is blank?

The Mega population is a stronger indication of ancestry than the marker panel. You just missed getting the markers for Jewish ancestry- that doesn't mean you don't have any. A sibling might show the markers but you don't.

For Megapopulations, does the order of the averages mean anything? What is considered high or low? How much do they overlap, particularly as it pertains to Jewish ancestry (markers 1 & 3)?

The megapopulations are listed in order of strength but sometimes the variations are large and sometimes very small. Look at the chart on page 11 of your report and see how the blue lines compare. The megapopulations are a better indication of your ancestry than the markers, so give them more weight.

Hope this helps
