    I've heard that costs rica is 60% white, it should be higher but there are so many mestizo Nicaraguans now. So it should be top 5. Cuba only has about 35% white (I don't think you're counting Cubans in spain&usa?). Chile also seems 35%, maybe 50 at most. I know a Chilean girl who claims her mon is white but she looks very mestiza.

    In the case of PR, I would add "multiracial" too.

    Pure amerindios in Venezuela & Colombia seem to be virtually extinct looking at that map. While in Ecuador, Bolivia & Peru it's a very sizable portion. I may have known that there was some difference but not _that_ big.

    In Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, and possibly Paraguay, it wasn't really surprising to me. Overall the entire map is pretty much what I suspected.

    When it comes to Brazil, I tend to trust more genetic studies, though they are not perfect or exact. Information based on census depends on how people self identify, on the categories, etc.

    According to this study from 2011, with "pardo", "white" and "black" samples from all over the country, according to their respective proportions, this would be the total composition of the Brazilian population by region.

    Other autosomal DNA studies addressing the whole population gave similar results.

    Basically I think OP's list is right.

    Only I'd put Cuba before Chile.

    What's your opinion on this assesment I found on the Pardo population? Do you think it's accurate?

    The brown population (as multiracial Brazilians are officially called; pardo in Portuguese, also colloquially moreno, or swarthy)is a broad category that includes caboclos (assimilated Amerindians in general, and descendants of Whites and Natives), mulatos (descendants of primarily Whites and Afro-Brazilians) and cafuzos (descendants of Afro-Brazilians and Natives).People of considerable Amerindian ancestry form the majority of the population in the Northern, Northeastern and Center-Western regions. Higher percents of Blacks, mulattoes and tri-racials can be found in the eastern coast of the Northeastern region from Bahia to Paraíba and also in northern Maranhão, southern Minas Gerais and in eastern Rio de Janeiro.

    ^ To a certain extent yes, I'd trust more genetic studies though. There are "pardos" who are more "European" than some "whites" or more "African" than some "blacks", and many, especially in the North, have significant native american ancestry. There is considerable individual variation.
