Find my post in the Cherokee Forum where I’ve shown my World Population Matches. You and I have several in common - Hispanic - Southwestern US (my rank 15); Hispanic - Minnesota (4, 5, 9), Hispanic - California (19), Hispanic - US (13, 22, 42); and Hispanic - North Carolina (6). I have other Hispanic matches as well.

The order of the top 50 populations is a mathematical calculation so in that sense they are listed from "more" to "less". However, the variances are often statistically too small to count. In general, you can group them together and count each group as almost the same. The first ten or twelve might be very close, then the next ten etc. The "N" numbers are not related to your frequency- everyone who has the same population will have the same N. It's a way differentiate each population.

Hope this helps!
