White AmericansWhite Americans are people identified or identifying as white or primarily Caucasian or of European ancestry in the U.S. The United States Census Bureau defines white people as those “having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa. It includes people who reported “White” or wrote in entries such as Irish, German, Italian, Lebanese, Near Easterner, Arab, or Polish.

The White – U.S. (White American) population data represent a broad, national group of DNA samples from 102 Caucasian individuals who also are part of the FBI’s DNA database. These samples were provided by the University of North Texas Health Science Center, in Fort Worth, TX. The White – U.S. population data represent DNA samples from 172 Caucasian (White American) individuals in the United States. Samples were taken from the database at the Bode Technology Group, located in Springfield, Va.
