>From my own non-representative sample (by definition):
23 - 3rd degree relationships (1st cousins, great
aunt/uncle-niece/nephew) - high 14.40%, low 9.49%
29 - 4th degree relatoinships (1st cousin 1x removed, half first cousin,
etc ) - high 9.22% , low 4.40%

Other question is how many segments 5 cM or higher:
3rd degree - range 25 to 40 segments.
4th degree - range 12 to 29 segments.
