Table 6 Correlation between the genetic distances of EEJ and geography*

From: The origin of Eastern European Jews revealed by autosomal, sex chromosomal and mtDNA polymorphisms

  Warsaw Rome Jerusalem
Autosomes** 0.778 0.926**** -0.149
X*** 0.781 0.835 -0.685
Y** -0.613 -0.213 0.556
mtDNA** 0.471 0.779 -0.190
  1. * - Great circle distances calculated from the three alternatives for their origin
  2. ** - Based on the 14 populations (excluding Ethiopian Jews) in the autosomal matrix
  3. *** - Based on the 10 populations (excluding Ethiopian Jews) common to all 4 matrices
  4. **** - When the Italians are removed, the correlation still remains very high, 0.904.
