    Exclamation Sub-type Estimates by Nation

    In my opinion it is next to impossible to precisely estimate the percentage of certain sub-type in any given modern population or country. Regardless of a skill level such an estimates cannot be derived unless one would literally have a dna of every single individual in that population. Therefore, estimates from any organizations or individuals are not accurate. We know to a certain extend how to classify a person into generalized sub-type hence every case should be looked at separately. Do you agree with me or not?

    Races and sub races are based on phenotype, at least they were in the past. Blumenbach, von Linne etc did not have access to DNA or even heard of genetics. Even Coon made assumptions based on skeletal remains and extrapolated to living populations in the same general area.

    I don't agree with you. It just will take a long time to obtain sufficient results representative of the country or part of the country. DNA results is in its infancy and concentrating on mtDNA and Y chromosome data. A personal example, my son is one eighth Chinese, but it is not visible phenotypically and his mtDNA comes from his mother's mother's mother's etc, all of whom are caucasoids and his Y chromosome comes from my paternal line and is caucasian. Yet he has a Chinese great grandfather. DNA is limited in its application at present.
