Is not possible i get the smaller number of neanderthal % among all male europeans (from scandinavia to calabria) since i'm fully european. something wrong in the calculation.
physically impossible, fuzzy data and marketing oriented factoids.

1.8% neanderthal 2.4% denisovan (geno 2.0)
2.3% neanderthal (23andMe)

Your Neanderthal is in the usual range. European average is 2.6. That doesn't mean every European has 2.6 or above. That means there are Europeans with lower and higher Neanderthal ancestry than this 2.6%.

Take in mind it is less than a percentage of your ancestry we are talking here about. It doesn't matter much if 3.0 or 2.0%
