Is it possible to have a combined paternity index of 57 million to 1 and if so what does that mean?

OK, I went and tried to educate myself on this to help, and I'm having a hard time figuring these scientific articles out. From what I understand, it seems like it means the person is the child's father, but you should really contact the people that sent you the results. Does anything on the results sheet tell you plainly? 'Yes' or 'no'? ___% chance? I wish I could help more.

This is what I found for the meaning of combined paternity index:

This ratio indicates how many times more likely it is that the results of the DNA analysis would have been obtained given that the tested man (alleged father) is the true biological father of the child submitted rather than an unrelated man picked at random from the same ethnic population.
The CPI is based solely on genetic evidence and is determined by multiplying the individual PIs for each marker tested.






So in my opinion, with the results you provided, I would say its most likely that you are the father.

Found some more info here:

Combined Paternity Index (CPI)


The combined paternity index is the product of all of the individual paternity index values multiplied together and is a measure of the strength of the genetic evidence. The CPI can range from 0 to infinity. When the combined paternity index is 0, it means the alleged father is not the dad. When the combined paternity index is greater than 100 it means the alleged father is the dad, however it cannot be stated simply as “you are the father”. Because the probability of paternity can never be 100% (you will often `see 99.999%), you cannot say “you are the father” because that implies 100% certainty. Therefore, the results are reported as “the alleged father can not be excluded as the biological father of the child”. When the combined paternity index is greater than 0, but less than 100, the results are inconclusive. Inconclusive results are most often the cause of doing a paternity test without the mother. In most instances, inclusion of the mother’s genetic profile into the statistical calculations results in a conclusive result.


So with a result of 57 million to 1 that indicates that you are the father

well all im trying to figure out is if its even possible to get odds that high 57 million to 1 seems super high how can the number be that large. I am a white male

The link I posted in my second post has some great info. It stated that the numbers can go to infinity. So yes it's absolutely possible for the number to be that high. To exclude you from being the father it would need to be between 0-100. Anything above 100 means you are the dad.

Well it reads like this Combined Paternity Index 57,028,384 to 1 Probability of Paternity 99.99 % Prior Probability = 0.5 so I am still stuck on how the cpi can be 57 million to 1

I do not what all of that means, but 99.99% you are the father, congratulations!

Okie, here's the best I can do to answer your question. The to 1 that you keep questioning is the probability of YOU being the father against the odds of another random, untested male in the population having the same results as you. It seriously does not mean anything in the big picture. You are the father, there is absolutely no doubt about that. I think we've helped you as much as we can help. If you have further questions it might be a good idea to contact the lab that performed the test and ask them to explain the results to you.
