Chapter 2
Report on the Osteological Assessment of the "Kennewick Man" Skeleton (CENWW.97.Kennewick)
Joseph F. Powell and Jerome C. Rose

Table 7

Table 7 is comprised of 2 tables designed to summarize the probability of group membership for Kennewick Man in 22 modern populations, based on inter-individual squared Mahalanobis' distances derived from 52 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, D2 Value, 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 Moriori, N. Moriori, Ainu, S. Moriori, and Easter Island.

The second table, detailing the statistically furthest populations, is comprised of 3 columns and 5 rows. From left to right the column headers read Furthest 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 Bushmen, Berg, Peru, Hainan, and Tasmanian.

The significance of the Table 7 is to document the statistical probability of group membership for Kennewick Man in modern populations. For a more detailed and contextualized discussion of Table 7 and the osteological assessment of the Kennewick Man skeleton refer back to the text.
