esa pekka salonenFinland is one of the Scandinavian countries.  Finland has a population of approximately 5 million and 93% speak Finnish.  Research conducted by Leena Peltonen, a medical geneticist,  discovered that the genetics of Finns are relatively uniform due to several centuries of isolation and intermarriage.

The Finland population data represent DNA samples from 230 randomly selected individuals from Finland.  STR frequencies were reported in the most recent European database release of the Working Group of the European Network of Forensic Institutes STRbase Project (Frequencies).
