Harpending's raggedness index (0.0349, P = 0.5270) and the sum-of-squares deviation (SSD = 0.0047, P = 0.4750) were not significantly different from the simulated data under the sudden population expansion model.
In addition, nonsignificant raggedness values supported the spatial-population-expansion model (Table 1).
