I guess this is the day to join the U152 group. I've got 5 new members since I started this post today.

Just fyi, of the 310 DF19 members, over 220 have done Big Y.

I think one of the two admins is STILL waiting for his "new" Big Y result...

Here is the penetration of Y111 in these two large subclade projects of R1b-P312:

DF27: 52.3%

L21: 55.8%

How does U152 compare with that? or U106?

I was honestly surprised that DFY27 has made this much progress. They can not be underestimated. They also have 41.8% Big Y penetration.

U106 currently has 47.5% of its members (4157) having Y111 STR results. This does not include the folks who are still pending Y111 results. In addition, we have 33.2% of members with current Big Y results (not including pending results). We also have 77 kits without any STR results (mostly Genographic Project results, but may also include autosomal results where the individual has tested U106+ via other testing companies).

Checking the pending results, I counted 155 pending Y111 STR tests and 130 pending Big Y tests. This would raise the percentages to: 51.3% 111 STRs & 36.3% Big Y.

Thank you, very impressive. I haven't tried to count pending tests for L21 and DF27 but these three big subclades (including U106) of L151 are quite active. I hope U152 is coming along.

I posted this elsewhere but just to consolidate it here:

As of today U152 project has 2144 members of which 595 (536 completed, 55 batched, 4 ordered) are BigY tested (27.8%)

We have 845 members (768 completed, 73 batched, 4 ordered) who have ordered 111 test (39.4%),1524 with 67 markers (71.1%), 1924 with 37 markers (89.7%), 1961 with 25 markers (91.5%) 2056 with 12 markers (95.9%), and 88 members without any STR results.

Another 138 BigY orders don't have a 111 test completed/batched/or ordered. Once these are added 45.8% of all members will have 111 marker results (47.8% of all STR results).

Mitchell - since you are having so much fun summarizing haplogroup R, here are two files that you should enjoying playing around with:

http://www.rcasey.net/DNA/Temp/HG_R_Master_20170630A.xlsx

http://www.rcasey.net/DNA/Temp/Haplogroup_R_20180125B.xlsx

Here are some facts associated with these two files:

1) the first files is 67 or higher markers (but 68 to 111 markers are not included) - 54,100.

2) the second file is 37 only markers - 45,400 (this is a new file).

3) these pulls are from 5,200 projects (biased to European and R1b).

4) the last pull was in May, 2017.

5) the haplogroups are from the YSTR report and are only entered once when the tester reaches 37 or 67 markers.

6) the 37 marker file does not have derived fields that manually have to be added - just raw FTDNA data.

On other sidenote, I have been using the FTDNA matching system as a L226 admin to find matches. I have already

increased the size of L226 by 15 % - the vast majority are private (project only) privacy settings. I am not nearly

complete with this data mining and fully expect that 20 to 30 % of testers are defaulting to private and are

not available in public projects. Based on this discovery, the current count is around 125,000 testers at 37

markers or higher for R1b. Then add another 20 % for projects that still have either the YSTR or YSNP report

private to their project - 150,000 is probably more realistic due to privacy settings. Then you need to add

testers that have never joined any projects and can not be found. And for each pull, I add 250 to 500 new

projects which always adds another one percent for each pull. So the above summaries are probably missing

50 % of haplogroup R testers and the percentage continues to grow with FTDNA's default for all new YSTR

testers is private.

Everyone should really lobby for projects to change their report settings to public (Anyone) and if you notice

that individuals show up in the project that you belong to - but do not show in the public version, lobby them

to update their privacy settings to public. By the end of 2018, over 50 % of all R1b testers will not be accesssible

to the general public.

My automated extraction program is now down again due to some change in my network or FTDNA servers. Does anyone know

of any new changes since May that FTDNA has implemented ? I also have not updated the code for the new YSNP format that only shows the first 25 testers. The error checking routines indicate that it is some kind of connection issue. The hppts check

still passes and that was a bear to update around two years ago. Also, my friendly local IP provider (now Spectrum) altered my

DNS servers around three years to add their advertising - I had to hard code known DNS servers for that network issue.

Total members_____950

Big Y_____________115 - 12.1 %

111______________259 - 27.2 %

67_______________648 - 68.2 %

37_______________950 - 100 % - do not track 25 or lower

Starting in September, L226 changed their guidelines for joining R-L226 to being confirmed L226 by YSNP testing to being predicted L226 by YSTR signature. Since that time, we have proactively encouraged joining the project and during the last six months have increased the project size by 45 %. This has been done primarily via the FTDNA matching system and sending emails requesting testers to join. Less than five percent have been rejected (L226 is very isolated) and to my big surprise - over half were not in our spreadsheet (privacy setting to private -Project only or no project membership). So for predictable single signature haplogroup projects, you can probably double your project size via the FTDNA matching system as the number of "Project Only" testers (new FTDNA default), no project YSTR report or no major project being joined is extremely large (probably around 50 % of your testers). I still need to contact at least another 100 testers (second or third request for some). Also, as new testers join, new matches show up for these testers which is another surprise.

In February we removed ~35 members who shouldn't have been in the project, so that's why you don't see much growth for U152.

Once again you left out the monumentally important R1b-41-1123 Project (https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/r1b-41-1123/about/project-statistics), which has 34 members.

It's the quality, not the quantity, or as they say in Quantico, Virginia, whatever.

(I think they say, "It's the Quantico, not the Qualico", but that's not very helpful.)

Something is wrong. Maybe it's a change in the privacy defaults, but DF19 continues to grow. It now has 343 members as of this week, despite what the above says. Perhaps the other "declining" groups are experiencing something similar.

edit: Or perhaps it's just a typo and the value for the R Z251 cell beneath (also 269) was accidentally used instead of 343?

Changes in R Haplogroup project numbers over the last year, and totals in FTDNA database.

https://i.pinimg.com/originals/99/bb/c1/99bbc174b9ea8fb962b7dfbb41e78c3f.png

Note: Not every member of a project has tested positive for that SNP. Hence you can have more members in a project than actual positive results for that haplogroup/SNP.

Combined R-Z40481 subclades (DF27: 5922, U152: 5475, DF99: 158, ZZ37_1: 97) are now more numerous in the FTDNA database than all R1a 11749 vs 11664; and are almost as numerous as all of U106: 11749 vs 12475.

L21 still has a big lead on the rest of P312, making up 57.6% of all P312 in the FTDNA database.

Go to the FTDNA Haplotree and click on the country report for a given haplogroup and scroll to bottom to get the total number for said haplogroup.

R1b currently has 63,964 samples

Just to make sure everyone understands, the total number for a haplogroup based on the haplotree reports include only people with SNP testing. In the case of R1b, that means there are thousands of predicted R-M269 people in the database that are not on the haplotree.

On a FB forum, an FTDNA employee said there are over 700,000 Y DNA records in their database. I would expect about 300,000 to be R1b confirmed or predicted.

Not much happening on anthrogenica so I looked at the FTDNA haplotree U152 and DF27 numbers out of boredom and saw something that caught my eye. DF27 growth has dramatically slowed of late.

On 12/31/2018, there were 5922 DF27 in the FTDNA haplotree.

1 year later on 1/01/2020 there were 6934

That was a 17.1% increase over 1 year

By comparison U152 only increased 4.3% over that same period (5475 to 5712)

Since the beginning of the year, DF27 has dramatically slowed in growth. In fact, U152 grew faster and added more total members (452 vs 378).

Today U152's number is 6164 (7.9% increase since 01/01/2020) and DF27 is 7312 (5.5% increase since 01/01/2020).

Fear not razyn and Webb, :) I don't think this is a long term trend that will topple DF27 as "King of ZZ11" :biggrin1:

Maybe it means that DF27 has made up most of the lost ground due to having a later start in discovery and testing; and things are now settling into a more normal growth pattern in the FTDNA database.

If so, then ZZ11 surpassing U106 in the FTDNA database (currently 13476 ZZ11 vs 14912 U106) may not occur.

Overall, R1b has increased from 65536 to 69596 since 01/01/2020, which is 6.2% growth.

...Today U152's number is 6164 (7.9% increase since 01/01/2020) and DF27 is 7312 (5.5% increase since 01/01/2020).

Weird. Both U152's and DF27's total number have dropped since July 12th

Today U152 is 6156 and DF27 is 7250. So U152 lost 8 and DF27 lost 62 over the last 22 days? That's odd.
