Chris, if you take all of your numbers out of the table and hit show frequencies, you will see that all of the columns are the same. For example, the FBI African American (1) 1.00E+00 is the same all the way across even for the Ascending order column. YOu should try this - just take out all your numbers and hit Show frequencies.
After your numbers are entered you will notice that the population names in that middle row have stayed the same, but their numbers have changed. Also, you will notice that the "ascending order" populations titles are now all shuffled around and the numbers the ascending order are now ranked. NOw find a population title in the middle column, lets say FBI African American (the top one). The number next to it in the middle column MIGHT say 1.44E+14, now look at your ascending order column and find FBI African American - you will notice that that number is the same 1.44E + 14, however, it is listed in ascending order.
Also, yes the value of the number is listed in the column above. For example, 1.09E+10 might read as 109345376.345. But I have seen Thomas Krahn work out results with a participant and the way we read these number would be as follows: 1.09E+09 would actually read as
I will mention that Thomas Krahn did say not to rely too much on the ranked populations, but again, it is more reliable to look at the clustered dots. Also, as I mentioned in the above post - if you've had mtdna or y-dna performed your results are much more reliable, since the Omnipop is only looking at averages. I hope this helps.
