    Abstract

    A large series of blood group protein systems has been analyzed as part of a project funded by the California Office of Criminal Justice Planning. These blood group protein systems potentially form the basis for establishing useful probabilities associated with the occurrence of particular sets of phenotypes. Two facts must be established concerning these systems in order to calculate most types of probabilities. First, the proportion of each phenotype must be accurately estimated for the population of interest. Second, statistical independence must be established among all systems considered.
