  1. Shown, for a given subset of individuals, are average, variance, and s.d. of assignment values from STRUCTURE results when K = 4. Differences in assignment values for Northern, Southern, Asian, and African clusters (italicized and in bold) were found to be significant between Non-Ashkenazi and Ashkenazi Jews based on 10000 permutations of assignment values. Variance of Northern and Southern assignment values was high within a subset based on grandparental country of birth (GCB), with the exception of Ukraine and Germany (italicized). For GCB, in four instances, individuals were combined into a subset when GCBs were adjoining geographically and had a history of border shifts and periods of unification or division (ex: Czech/Hungary/Austria), such that the town or city in which a grandparent was born might currently lie in one of the neighboring countries rather than the stated GCB.
