    So you mean about 25% of population(30%women,20%men) where you live is blond,and this estimate is about the same of the most nordic parts in US?

    USA - 23-25% (South - 25%; Northeast - 18-20%; Midwest - 33-35%; West - 25%)
    This just inculde white americans only,how do you think about this?
    It seems realistic indeed. In total numbers, certainly the southern regions are the darkest, but if you include only white Americans the proportion there may be somewhat higher than in New England. In the pacific regions, there is a big difference between the relative nordic states Washington and Oregon and the overall less nordic California.

    So you mean about 25% of population(30%women,20%men) where you live is blond,and this estimate is about the same of the most nordic parts in US?
    Yes, indeed. If you count only the white population, there is no all too big difference in blondness between the germanic countries, except for Scandinavia, which is significantly lighter. If you’re interested, on YouTube there exists a “blonde league”, a list with the most blonde countries (in german language):

    The highest frequenses (over 75%) of Blond and Light Brown hair among young males in the Germanic World are most likeley found in:
    Sweden:
    Medelpad
    Småland
    Öland
    Gotland
    Blekinge
    Notable is that the Finland Swedes have somewhat darker hair, but lighter eyes, than the Finns, the same thing goes for the Estonia Swedes v.s the Estonians.
    Norway:
    Telemark
    Aust Agder
    West Augder
    Denmark:
    Inner Jutland

    Lowest frequency of Blond and Light Brown hair among young males in the Germanic World (lower than 30%) may be found in:
    England:
    Devon-Cornwall (if Cornwall is to be defined as Germanic, and not Celitic)
    Greater Germany:
    Luxembourg
    Lothringen
    Ober Bayern
    Voralberg
    North and South Tirol
    Salzburg
    Kärnten

    I think there are more places in England and Great Germany where light hair frequency is lower than 30%.

    South Tyrol at large is typically darker than North or East Tyrol, with a brown/brown pigment dominating much more evidently than is the case elsewhere. At the same time however, I do know a good number of blonde/blue South Tyroleans, most notably one very pretty girl at university, as well as one 6'4" über-Nordid comrade.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    We could try to analyse better the things................

    ---------------------------------------

    Coon/Biasutti/Eickstedt/ othr authors, based estimations :

    -----------------------------------------

    GERMANY : 35% average (notable internal variation)


    ENGLAND : 25-30% average (notable internal variation)


    NETHERLAND:35-40% average (scarce internal variation)


    SWEDEN : 55-60% average (scarce internal variation)


    NORWAY* : same above*


    DANMARK : 50% average (scarce internal variation)


    SCOTLAND : 10%-20% average (dependently if you consider RED hair to be blond)



    If someone is interested i could continue with more specific data........
    False. Only in more southern parts of Europe that the average for blond hair is 10%, for example in Northern Italy. Germany isn't that blond either and is quite diverse, though some parts are "pretty" blond(North). I do not believe in the blond+blue-eyed German myth. Scotland isn't that dark either, approximately 26.7% of Scots have blond hair and red hair varies anywhere between 10%-25% (depending on the definition). The Welsh are usually less blond than the Scots and English, but 10%-15% have red hair also amongst them. The English show much more variety, but as a whole are comparable
    to the Dutch in blondness, but exceed them in the frequency of red hair. Over 50% of Danes, Norwegians and Swedes are generally blond-headed.

    Blond hair frequency variations in the Netherlands by province (It is a terrible mistake to believe that all Germanic populations are uniformly blond, they are not). Percentages listed below:
    Friesland = 43.2%
    Groningen = 41.3%
    Drenthe = 39.4%
    Overijssel = 35.5%
    Gelderland = 34.4%
    South Holland = 31.4%
    North Holland = 31.2%
    Zeeland = 28.4%
    North Brabant = 22.3%
    Limburg = 21.8%

    Not! Cornwall is a Celtic nation, though many Cornish do indeed have Germanic (Anglo-Saxon) strains since 45% of males have the Germanic Y-DNA and nowhere as "dark" as you are defining it. It is not the darkest county in England. This was an error committed by earlier anthropologists. In facts parts of the South Netherlands and obviously Germany are less blond than Cornwall. So forget Cornwall in your "dark" list. Approximately 30% of the Cornish have various shades of fair hair, 3% red hair and 35% have pure blue eyes, but the majority of Cornish have brown hair of various shades. Counties less blond than Cornwall are Somerset, Wiltshire and particularly West Sussex, not Devon.

    For Germany, Baden (15%-20%), Saarland(15%-20%), Rhineland Palatinate (19%), Hesse (22%), Lusatia (15%), Frankish Bavaria (15%-20%), Ruhr area (21%).

    This genetic map of light hair and light eyes shows England to be more comparable to northern regions of Germany as well as the Netherlands. However counties of England which are "very Anglo-Saxon" are lighter-haired, because they have both a high frequency of not only blond but also red hair.

    E.g. (black hair will be included with brown hair, due to the fact that it is in a very insignificant portion in Northern European populations.)

    Friesland (Netherlands-North) = 43.2% blond, 2.5% red, 54.3% brown
    Groningen (Netherlands-North) = 41.3% blond, 2.3% red, 56.4% brown
    Drenthe (Netherlands-North) = 39.4% blond, 2% red, 58.6% brown
    Lower Saxony, Bremen, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern ( Germany-North) = 43% blond, 1% red, 56% brown
    Schleswig Holstein = 46% blond, 1% red, 53% brown

    "very Anglo-Saxon" counties of England
    East Sussex = 44% blond, 9% red, 47% brown
    Norfolk = 44% blond, 6% red, 50% brown
    Rutland = 41% blond, 6% red, 53% brown
    Merseyside = 40% blond, 7% red, 53% brown
    Tyne and Wear = 40% blond, 6% red, 54% brown
    Kent = 38% blond, 12% red, 50% brown
    Essex = 36% blond, 14% red, 50% brown
    Suffolk = 34% blond, 10% red, 56% brown
    Lincolnshire = 38% blond, 6% red, 57% brown
    Isle of Wight = 33% blond, 8% red, 59% brown

    The darkest in the Netherlands is;
    Limburg (South-East) = 21.8% blond, 3.0% red, 75.2% brown
    The darkest in England is;
    Wiltshire (South-West) = 25% blond, 3% red, 72% brown

    So they are comparable, but more red hair amongst the English as expected.

    In England? No that many, perhaps with the much larger immigration from all over the planet.
    These are counties of England with a lower than 30% for fair hair;
    West Sussex - 22%
    Wiltshire - 25%
    Derbyshire - 25%
    Worcestershire - 28%
    Somerset - 28%
    However there are many more in Wales, Scotland and Ireland.
