Academic publications

The success of Onolytics has been due to its robust external academic validation. This means that in many cases, independent researchers compared people known ethnicity via traditional means (self-description) with Onolytics results based on their names, establishing their accuracy in different settings and countries. Their consistent results is that Onolytics proves to be reliable at the population level and is a valuable proxy for ethnicity when this is not available.
