Least-squares method.

Using 1 population approximation:
1 Belorussian @ 3.500394
2 Polish @ 3.602772
3 Russian_Smolensk @ 3.935489
4 Estonian_Polish @ 4.029219

https://www.gedmatch.com/gedwiki/ind...itle=Admixture

"You can use the Oracle and Oracle-4 buttons to calculate how your genome compares to various populations and mixtures.

Oracle-4 will attempt to pinpoint your ethnic group of origin, and then also work out the most likely combinations of two, three and four ancestral populations which make up your genome. However, this doesn't mean the results will actually show your ethnic group, or those of your parents (in dual mode) or grandparents (4-way mode). They might for many people, but for others they'll reflect the best possible outcomes from the reference samples available.

The results tables show several possibilities rated in order of most likely ethnicity.

The lower the Distance value - the closer you are to that population.

The Single Population Sharing result assumes your ancestors came from one reference population.

The Mixed Mode Population Sharing result assumes your ancestors came from more than one reference population and displays the most likely combinations.

There are differences in the number of SNPs used for different Admixture calculators and different testing companies' chip types. Scroll down to the bottom of the first result page, and it shows how many SNPs were used in that calculation."

No, as you can see they have specific groups within Europe so it is appropriate for seeing more of a breakdown of what specific European populations you match the closest to. I'd only use calculators that suit your background though, like Eurogenes. This one seems to be suggesting you are mostly or entirely of Eastern European background - is that the case? Keep in mind it's speculative and shouldn't be taken very literally. Some Oracle results are wildly off the mark for me.

okay thank you for explanation

YES-100% EASTERN EUROPEAN so judging by the 1 reference population, am I polish, belarussian, russian and so forth cuz i took all tests of every kind such as mdlp, and others and russian appeared in the lower distances frequently and russian appeared multiple times on each list(test i mean) i heard that if the population distance that if its below 5 then you are more related to the population or is it 10. (by the way the test i posted in forums, its eurogenes k13 i think)
