2 Table 12 Table 12 is comprised of 2 tables designed to summarize the probability of group membership for Kennewick Man in modern (combined Howells and Hanihara data) and 13 Archaic samples based on sizecorrected Mahalanobis' squared distances derived from 10 craniometric variables. The first table, detailing the statistically closest populations, is comprised of 3 columns and 5 rows. From left to right the column headers read Closest Populations, Mahalanobis Distance, and Typical Probability. The 5 rows are comprised of varying statistical information corresponding to the column headers listed above. The populations detailed in the first column, reading from top to bottom are Chukchi, Eskimo (Howells), Moriori (Hanihara), Eskimo (Hanihara), and N. Moriori (Howells). The second table, detailing the statistically furthest populations, is comprised of 3 columns and 5 rows. From left to right the column headers read Farthest Populations, Mahalanobis Distance, and Typical Probability. The 5 rows are comprised of varying statistical information corresponding to the column headers listed above. The populations detailed in the first column, reading from top to bottom are Bhutan, Windover Archaic, SE U.S. Archaic, Bird Island Archaic, Plains Archaic. The significance of the Table 12 is to document the statistical probability of group membership for Kennewick Man in modern and archaic populations.
