The Lapps are a small group of people, totalling about 33,000 individuals. They speak their own Finno-Ugric language, and live scattered over a big area of the northern Fenno-Scandinavian peninsula (about 21,000 in Norway, 8000 in Sweden, 2000 in Finland, and 2000 in Russia).Fairly detailed blood grouping has been done on Swedish and Norwegian Lapps. There are small differences between them, but they both differ significantly from the surrounding Scandinavian population, and from all other peoples of Europe. Their blood group properties are, in fact, distinctly different from all other populations in the world so far studied.The most striking feature is the extremely high incidence of the A2 gene (about 0.35). The NS gene is very frequent. The cde gene has the lowest incidence in Northern Europe; the cDE gene is rather common. The Cw property is probably more frequent than in any other European population.Further investigations on the Norwegian Lapps are in progress. So far, the Diego factor has not been found; nor has the V or the Wr(a +) property.
