How much Paleo-Mongolid admixture is in the inhabitants of the Sinid territory(Central/Northern China, Korea and Japan)? I see that this admixture appears to be present but rather weak, is it known how great it is?

I won't make estimates with percentages, but its clear that Palaemongolid elements being present, especially in the Southern and coastal areas.

In Japan the South is more Palaemongolid, same is true for Korea, in China the South and coast has clear Palaemongolid elements, though they being largely mixed with Sinids which expanded with the classic Chinese and Thai mainly. The Palaemongolid type is an umbrella taxon with many quite different subtypes, some being more progressive, others more primitive, again others very infantile, with the latest being the most typical form for most systems.
Southern China has strong strains of different Palaemongolid variants, in Japan its a constitutive element and in Southern Korea being present as strong admixture.
