I Am Dominican From Dominica Republic... ASK Me Anything. by yodanyrd: 9:02am On Mar 19, 2015
Am Dominican and ask me anything about my people. I would love to hear your questions and answer them as best as i can.

Now, before any further question, i will post some pictures and stats about my people.
Cheers.

In the Last 2010 Dominican Census, Dominican marked themselves as follow...

59% Other(Mixes)
29% White
12% Black

According to C.I.A. Fact Book estimates Dominicans are:

73% Mix Tri-racial(Spanish ,Afro ,Native)
16% White( Spanish/Other European)
11% Black

According to recent genealogical tests by DNA-Tribe the average Dominican is estimated to be:
58.1 % Spanish European
35.2% African
6.4% Taino Indio

According to another DNA test made on Dominicans from around the island, it scored on average:
60% European
29% African
7% Taino Indian

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/lv?authkey=CL2T54EF&hl=en_US&key=0At1sp4m_NTCLdHB4a2FZYXRxZnh0UzRfbzlTV2lXSWc&type=view&gid=0&f=true&sortcolid=-1&sortasc=true&rowsperpage=250

According to PLOS Genetics the average Mix Dominican is
57% Spanish European
38% Afro
5% Native American.

http://journals.plos.org/plosgenetics/article?id=10.1371/journal.pgen.1003925

Which mean most Mixes Dominicans are a mixture of 3 races with a higher percent of Europeans ancestry because of the many European who immigrated and settled in the island and become modern day D'cans.

welcome bro from Hispaniona.

How is your immigration service to the foreigners most especially to students from the english speaking country interested in studying in Dominican Republic since the country was colonised by Spain?

Apart from Santo Domingo, the country's capital, what other cities are infrastructurally developed?

About the Immigration service for foreigners, I will give you the BEST D.R. travel website for people like you.. in this active forum you can ask as much question as you want or you can suffer throw it and check many of your question already answer.

There are many Dominicans who speak very good English in the country.
Beside Santo Domingo, the most developed city is Santiago, it's in the center of the country. It's the second most populate city in DR.
