Analysis: Examination of the data and what it means in relation to the research question and the prior literature on the
subject. This section may also be titled Results.
Sample analysis: The regression relationships of genetic distance and geographic distance were highly significant in all cases except for West Africa, where the relationship approached significance (Table 2). The equation and r-value for West Africa are in the same range as the others, and the lack of significance is mainly due to the West African sample having fewer populations in it. The equations in Table 2 are surprisingly similar to each other, demonstrating some uniformity in average spatial mobility among individuals across the different parts of the Old World land mass.
