Our DNA assessment confidence percentage is a number meant to help you identify which matches to focus on. The higher the confidence percentage, the more likely that they are more closely related to you. Our confidence levels are determined by the amount of shared genetic markers with our reference panel, built from many years of research and data collection all over the world. To do this, we measure hundreds of thousands of markers in the DNA to analyze the number and length of continuous strands that align. As we continue to understand more about different populations, these confidence levels will improve.
