I'm just curious. Mine were all over the place. With Africa I was a range of 32% to 100% as a whole. Nigeria being the most reliable 30-64% and cote d'ivoire being 2-25% and Mali 0-20% and Togo/Benin 0-17% and Senegal 0-12% and Cameroon 0-12% eastern Bantu 0-7% and khoisan 0-2%...

European had some range too at 0%-32% as a whole. Generally though the actual countries didn't have much range because all the numbers were low in range like Irish was my largest number being 0-6% range. But I have 8 regions in Europe. Irish being 0-6% range Iberian/Spanish 0-5% Scandinavian 0-5% finish 0-4% great Britain 0-4% east Europe 0-3% Jewish European 0-2% west European 0-3% which totals my European out to 0-32%. It's confusing because I don't really know what is and isn't because almost everything has a possibility of being 0%. I'm wondering is this typical for the ranges?

I think I'm 6% Irish because my great great grandpa was white and he was said to be Irish descent. And my great grandfather ony fathers side was creole so I'm guessing I'm closer to 5% on that Scandinavian and a few others I don't know about at all. Then with Africa its the hardest to know because I never had any clue about what countries my family came fro. During slavery etc...

I had ranges for pretty much everything on there. My European ones had the biggest ranges as the rest of my areas are trace regions.

Are you black american? I'm curious because I was curious if there was a lot of range black Americans and east Africans because I remember looki g at 23andme for many east Africans it always shows at 90% accuracy a lot of the African heritage gets down to 30 something% or 40 something% my mom was like 90% at 50% speculative and then went down to 48% for African heritage. I saw a few Somalis with the same problem on both ancestrydna and 23amdme. Ancestrydna with the ranges and 23amdme with accuracy.

Im from the Swahili tribe from Mombasa Costal Kenya the ancestral composition of Swahilis vary some can be very mixed and others slightly. Id say a typical Swahili from Mombasa is mostly Bantu Kenyan from the Mijikenda tribe at as low as 55% to 95% Bantu Mijikenda with Turkish, South Asian, Persian, Yemeni and Omani admixture.

Swahili nasheed artist Brother nassir is a good example of a typical swahili.

As for the different confidence levels on 23andme my conservative mode im 95% SSA and 0.3% South Asian i guess the Middle Eastern and South Asian known ancestry i know i have is under unassigned at 4.7%. I guess what it means is that they are sure that im 95% african at a high confidence but cant match me with their population on their database because not many Swahilis have taken the test.

Here are my conservative results below from 23andme

That's good that you know what the unassigned portion is. My mom on 23andme is 8.8% European but with conservative it gets 7% so it doesn't even seem like its European. I'm guessing maybe it has to do with north African heritage like sahelian heritage. She's 44.7% unassigned on 23andme. And most of it is estimated to be African at 70-80% subsaharan but unknown. I'm estimated to be like 61% sahelian west African heritage which from what I've read is pretty much a variety of tribes some are pretty mixed. So its hard to know. For my mom what the other 44.7% is when she goes conservative.

Just to be clear your range for Africa is not 32%-100%. Ancestry test various bits of your DNA several (40) times over and give some sort of average as the result. The ranges just indicate how much you scored on a particular run of the test. On no phase of the testing would you have scored the minimum value on all your African heritage at once.

I took both the v1 and v2 versions. As you can see, there weren't huge differences in either the score or the range.

hey I do the same thing with west Europe it says range of 0-3% but then 0% estimate kind of like middle eastern does on ancestrydna yet it's in my trace regions instead of my other regions like middle east is.... lol

yeah but according to my test the European range is 0-32%.... On 23andme it's around 30% so I'm leaning towards the higher range honestly..

I got something on Polynesia on 23andme .1% but here on ancestrydna I only got a range which in my mother she had even more like .5% which implies that the range tells the whole story imo.
