Table 1 Distribution of immigrants to Argentina coming from Italy, Spain and neighboring countries (modified from [8])

From: The impact of modern migrations on present-day multi-ethnic Argentina as recorded on the mitochondrial DNA genome

Inter-census period Population (millions) Immigrants (%) Italians (%) Spaniards (%) MIT/MSP*1 Neighboring countries (%)

  1. The percentages in the census indicate the approximate contribution regarding to the total immigrants. *1 Lattes and Sautu [8] defines the 'masculinity index' (here denote as M) as the amount of man immigrants per 100 woman immigrants. Here, we define MIT/MSP as the quotient of the M value in Italians divided by the M value in Spaniards.
