Hello,

The table in the Eupedia say that there are 42% of N (the most of which are, as we know, N1c1) and 38% of R1a in Lithuania, but I know the only primary source, an article Y Chromosome and Mitochondrial DNA Variation

in Lithuanians by D. Kasperavičiūtė, V. Kučinskas and M. Stoneking (2003) (Annals of Human Genetics (2004) 68,438–452), which gives an entirely reverse proportion: 36.7% of N1c and 44.9% of R1a. The latter proportion has been calculated for ethnic Lithuanians, living in Lithuania, not for entire Lithuania, but, assuming that ethnic Lithuanians (approx 80% of the total population) have the bigest rate of N1c1 among statistically significant groups in the country, the controversy remains.:useless: So, my question is, which data are obsolete and which are correct. Any suggestions. Thanks.
