Canarian males     
  17th–18th centuries 63.2 ± 14.5 31.1 ± 14.0 5.8 ± 4.5
  Present day 83.0 ± 4.7 16.1 ± 4.6 0.9 ± 0.7
Canarian females     
  17th–18th centuries 47.9 ± 23.3 39.9 ± 22.9 12.2 ± 6.5
  Present day 55.4 ± 15.6 41.8 ± 15.8 2.8 ± 3.7
  1. Relative indigenous, Iberian and West sub-Saharan African contributions to the 17th–18th century and present-day Canary Islands populations, were estimated based on Y-chromosome and mtDNA haplogroup frequencies in the three paternal populations.
