World J2 haplogroup population size 2015


J2 distro & frequency

J2 distro & frequency overview (inaccurate)

J2 haplogroup population sizes based on currently available data (Wikipedia, Eupedia, FamilyTreeDNA). Asia leads with big population size countries like India and Pakistan. Then the “homeland” Anatolia/Turkey follows. Also important are New World Countries like Brazil and USA where most of the J2 are expected to have Old World origins in Iberia and Italy. In J2 Project@FTDNA the Unknown Origin (including Ashkenazi) prevails followed by Russia (mainly North Caucasian), Germany, Italy, Saudi Arabia, England, Georgia. Looking at the sample-size per expected population the leaders are: Ashkenazi (Lithuania Latvia Belarus Poland etc.), Ireland Scotland Norway Finland Wales Georgia Switzerland. No comprehensive (reliable) J2 percentages for many big countries found: China, Indonesia, Bangladesh and the New World. Please report to the J2 team if something can be added:
