Hallucinating numbers on a screen?

I’ve been running a ethnicity calculator. First time results are very different from the second time doing it . That’s got me thinking , could I have been hallucinating the wrong numbers the first time round ?

I need to reality test with your help. Can you please tell me what countries/nationalities you see here ?

Mixed Mode:
1 66.02% Saami + 33.98% Estonian @ 25.616
2 76.95% Saami + 23.05% UKR_Lvov @ 26.015
3 70.70% Saami + 29.30% Russian @ 26.103
4 50.39% Estonian + 49.61% Saami @ 26.107
5 79.30% Saami + 20.70% Hungarian1 @ 26.460
6 86.33% Saami + 13.67% Masai @ 26.513
7 80.08% Saami + 19.92% Czech @ 26.526
8 80.08% Saami + 19.92% Croat @ 26.538
9 88.67% Saami + 11.33% Bulala @ 26.551
10 81.64% Saami + 18.36% Romanian_Apuseni @ 26.577

Least-squares method.

Using 1 populations approximation
1 100% Saami @ 27.672
2 100% Estonian @ 32.689
3 100% Russian @ 34.482
4 100% Hungarian1 @ 40.303
5 100% Aleut_Tlingit @ 40.345
6 100% Aleut @ 40.700
7 100% Hungarian2 @ 41.140
8 100% UKR_Lvov @ 41.287
9 100% Czech @ 41.290
10 100% Croat @ 41.758

Using 2 populations approximation
1 50% Saami + 50% Estonian @ 26.084
2 50% Saami + 50% Russian @ 26.942
3 50% Saami + 50% Saami @ 27.672
4 50% Saami + 50% UKR_Lvov @ 28.368
5 50% Saami + 50% Hungarian1 @ 28.713
6 50% Saami + 50% Czech @ 29.065
7 50% Saami + 50% Croat @ 29.207
8 50% Saami + 50% Hungarian2 @ 29.277
9 50% Saami + 50% Romanian_Apuseni @ 29.559
10 50% Saami + 50% Romania_Gorj @ 30.086

Just a lot of eastern European countries …

Thanks- that’s what I can see too and Saami which can found in Finland and Norway . I was testing a small sub segment that is reckoned to be Siberian and Saami makes some sense. Several calculators gave Finnish and other related ethnicities like Saami .

It’s either a weird case of the calculators coincidently , but wrongly , giving a set of results that make sense or I’m losing the plot!

I’m now wondering what the odds would be for that!

I’m not going crazy. It’s giving the same result whatever chromosome and start and end point I use .

Phew! I hate when real life glitches make me doubt myself
