Uncertainty in the number of contributors for the European Standard Set of loci

Abstract

The effect of masking on the assignment of the number of contributors is assessed for the European Standard Set of loci by simulation. The risk that a two person mixture presents as single source is assessed as 2.6 × 10−13, a three person mixture presents as a two person 6.7 × 10−4 and a four person mixture presents as a three person 0.165.
