Distribution of European mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroups by region in percentage

Last update : January 2017.

Dodecad K12b admixtures

The following frequencies were complied using the data from the Dodecad Project's K=12b admixtures. The 'Total European' column represents North_European (Mesolithic Central and North European) + Atlantic_Med (Mesolithic South European and Neolithic European). The 'Total Middle Eastern' adds the frequencies of Caucasian (Caucasus and Anatolia), Gedrosian (Iranian Plateau) and Southwest Asian (Arabian peninsula). European and Middle Eastern ancestry together make up the 'Total West Eurasian' admixture. The purpose of this table is to easily find out what percentage of European, Middle Eastern or West Eurasian ancestry is found in various populations around Eurasia and Africa.
