Average Component Admixture for PopulationsComponents are based on reference population peaks. Please see National Geographic Reference Populations Overview and Regions overview for lucid description of similar analysis. Do also have a look at the complete Harappa World Admixture. This analysis is a subset of Harappa World Admixture.
South Indian Component
1) Decreases from TN Tamil (60%) > SL Tamil (58%) > Sinhalese (55.5%)
2) Bengali's, Kerala and TN Tamil Brahmins have approx the same (48%)
3) As expected Iranias have the least (3%). Europeans (not in this data) have 0%.
Ranges from 40% (Punjabi's) to 29.1% (TN Tamil) for South Asian populations. Sinhalese and SL Tamils are in the mid range with approx 31%.
Iranians have 41% of this component. The Punjabis have 9.8%. Southern and East South Asians have less that 5%, with Sinhalese 3.3% and Tamil 2.1%
South East (SE) Asian Component
Bengali's have the highest percentage (4.7%) of this component reflecting proximity of borders with SE Asian populations. Sinhalese have 1.6% of SE component while, TN-Tamils and SL-Tamils both have 1.3% of SE Asian component.
Chart of Component Admixture for each IndividualThe South Indian component is close to 60% for both Sinhalese and Tamils except for individual HRP0122 (49%) and HRP0232 (53%). HRP0232 is I, this blog author. The low f53% (for Sri Lankan) South Indian component is probably because of a maternal great grandmother who was probable European. Thats is reflected in the elevated NE European component of 4.7% compared other Sri Lankans with less than 2%. HRP0122 too has elevated NE European component of 4%. Maybe HRP0122 may care to comment on the elevated NE European component. HRP0122 and I we have corresponded by email and know of our identities.
