This research note reports on the first stage of a larger project in which we investigate the potential ways in which interdisciplinary approaches to important questions of identity and belonging can harness both existing data and emerging alternative information sources. Measures of identity are fundamental to social and health sciences, but often the uses to which the data are put and the inferences drawn from them are less than perfect mappings of needs. In this project we explore whether there is substantive value in connecting existing ethnographic and ethnic identification approaches with emerging information on ancestral histories using genomic science.
