Anyone knows how to convert number of variants (23andme) to %?

I don't think you can; the 23andMe number of variants is only out of 1500 while there are 100k+ variants by one measure (and the 1500 variants do not scale proportionally I believe). You could use your raw data with the Y-Str calculator (http://www.y-str.org/2014/12/ancient-calculator.html) (the calculator is quite old and there may be better and more recent methods however).

Do Arabian Peninsulars and North Africans on average score less than 1%? and how much Neanderthal% do Natufians score?

Too bad AncestryDNA doesn't give out those results. I bet it is less than Euros though.

hi according to the genographic project 2 (which i did a while ago), I have 2.0% neanderthal.. 23andme gave me a percentage in 2013 or so but i forgot (no longer available on the new version) it was something between 2 and 2.5
