This population data relates to Y chromosomal short tandem repeat (Y-STR) haplotype diversity analysis of 143 healthy unrelated male individuals from Jat population of Pakistan. Seventeen Y-STR loci were simultaneously amplified through AmpFISTR®YfilerTM PCR amplification kit. Evaluation of statistical parameters for forensic importance revealed in recognition of 124 unique haplotypes with diversity value of 0.996. Locus DYS385a/b demonstrated highest power of discrimination, polymorphism information content and gene diversity as 0.907, 0.854 and 0.807 respectively. Analysis of Molecular Variance (AMOVA) and multidimensional scaling plot (MDS) were also generated by using online tools at YHRD database. The data from this study could have significant importance in forensic applications, population studies and in strengthening the Y-STR database.
