    Unless you publish the figures for ethnic groups in each country and the results of each group then this really means nothing. UK for example has more people residing in the UK than UK dsecendants. The American Indian is the only native in the US, every one else is from somewhere else, so really if you are going to put people in a box then go the whole hog.
