The numbers were gathered from data taken over two extended periods. The
most recent period was from 4/18/05 to 11/1/05, (about 5 1/2 months). The prior
period was from 7/21/04 to 4/18/05, (about 9 months). The data show the

Sweeping generalizations abstracted from the data are also provided. They
may be true - or these might just be statistics. If enough companies let us

completely confidential. The only information that will be made public is a summary
of the responses. (If any).
