Dominant Y-DNA haplogroups in Europe and Middle East

Haplotypes a group of genes in an organism that is inherited together from a single parent.

Haplogroup is a group of similar haplotypes that share a common ancestor with a single-nucleotide polymorphism mutation. More specifically, a haplogroup is a combination of alleles at different chromosomes regions that are closely linked and that tend to be inherited together.
As a haplogroup consists of similar haplotypes, it is usually possible to predict a haplogroup from haplotypes.

Haplogroups pertain to a single line of descent, usually dating back thousands of years. As such, membership of a haplogroup, by any individual, relies on a relatively small proportion of the genetic material possessed by that individual.

Countries by percentage of similarity to Y-DNA average of Europeans

Countries by percentage of similarity to Y-DNA average of Europeans
Methodology: 1. Transfer the Y-DNA sample results to Excel from the data source; 2. Calculate the average Y-DNA percentages of hypothetical European group by using a population of European countries. (Result: I1: 8.02%, I2/I2a: 7.37%, I2b: 2.19%, R1a: 20.658%, R1b: 31.37%, G: 4.23%, J2: 7.67%, J/J1: 1.62%, E1b1b: 6.96%, T: 1.35%, Q: 0.76%, N: 6.11% , Other: 1.63%; 3. Calculate the similarity between individual European country with the hypothetical average European group.
