I am curious what results other people got under the 90% certainty option and how they differed from the speculative mode.

At 90% certainty, I had over half of my DNA unassigned. Is this within the range everyone else had at 90% certainty (conservative)?

For reference, at speculative mode these are the percentages:

It certainly weirded me out; most of my close friends that also tested had a nearly complete accounting under the conservative option.

Heres mine in 23 and me and puts 76 percent in broadly euro at 90 percent accuracy. The only one that kinda has a standing is eastern euro . ( second photo is 50 percent accuracy ). I find it weird myself

2.4% Unassigned, but quite a bit "Broadly". My ancestry is 75% Isles and 25% French Canada.

Mine jumps a fair bit between standard and conservative. At Standard the unassigned is 3.8% and then Conservative it is 23.3%. Conservative puts me at 75% European which tallies with my paper trail.

50% confidence = 1.6% unassigned
60% c = 5.7% u
70% c = 12.9% u
80% c = 18.2% u
90% c = 31.7% u

I've got only 1.8% unassigned on conservative, and none on speculative. My known ancestry is entirety northern European, though, and my conservative results as a whole are more than 95% either broadly Northwestern European, or just broadly European.

Anecdotally from the results I've seen, high amounts of unassigned are common in individuals from a mixed background, especially if there's been multiple generations of admixture. Lots of small bits might throw off the algorithm.

At 90% Confidence Level my Unassigned is maximum at 3.2%.
At 80% Confidence, it is only 0.6%
By 70% Confidence it is 0.2%, and from 60 down to 50% it is <0.1%.

Obviously you have a large number of SNPs that are either not included or not strongly represented in the nearly 10,000 people in 23andme's reference panel.

Mine too.....at 90% confidence factor I am 70% unassigned which is very curious. Less than 5% of my dna is assigned to the racial group I am born and culturally identify. I need answers!! Lol

Wow. That's a lot of unassigned! What's your known background, if you don't mind my asking?


At 90% conservative confidence level, I only get 3.8% Unassigned -- but 80.8% in 3 different "Broadly" categories. The rest in 4 of the specific categories.

vs. 50% speculative confidence level where my Unassigned is 0.2%, and there's 22.7% in 5 different "Broadly" categories. The rest in 9 of the specific categories.

My known ancestry being mixed, but mainly German, Colonial American/British Isles, and Czech.

At 90% I only get 2.1% Unassigned. Everything else is in Broadly NW European (60%), Broadly European (27.1%), British & Irish (8.2%), French & German (1.4%), Scandinavian (0.9%), and Finnish (0.3%).

At 50% I get 0.1% Unassigned, and in the "Broadly" categories I have 19.3% NW Europe, 2.7% Southern Europe, and 0.2% Europe. Finnish remains at 0.3%, I get new 0.1% West African, and the other 3 specific categories increase in size.

How does that change with 70% and 50%?

Jesus. That kind of result would make me angry. At 90% confidence, I only have 2.8% unassigned, although 65% does get put in various "Broadly" categories. But at least they get the continental level right.

European - 72.5%
British & Irish - 10.9%
French & German - 2.2%
Ashkenazi Jewish - 0.2%
Broadly Northwestern European - 40.7%
Broadly European - 18.5%

East Asian & Native American - 24.7%
Japanese - 18.9%
Broadly East Asian - 5.5%
Broadly East Asian & Native American - 0.3%

Unassigned - 2.8%

At 90% I am 1.3% Unassigned.. my sister and only sibling is 1.5%.. we are largely Northwestern Euro/British Irish with just a bit of German.. and Living DNA does not yet acknowledge that and calls it English also
