Effective population size (Ne), growth rate (a) and Time of the first split. Ne is calculated by dividing θ by twice the mutation rate (0.0021) see [20] and [21]. Confidence Intervals represent respectively the 2.5% and 97.5% proportions of the distribution. Generation time of 30 years [22] The model assumes constant population growth. * this estimate is for Kyrgyz living in Kyrgyzstan
