Does the data for each country have to be from the same year or would
you accept various years for the countries?

data for each country can be from different years between 1997-2002.  Thank you!

Thank you again for a prompt answer to my question.  It sounds like it
took some time to find this info...Were you able to find rates for
Singapore or Switzerland?

Oops!  Sorry about that.  I have found stats for 1995 for both.  Let
me get something more recent.

I apologize.  Guess I missed them in all my searching.

Hi, again,
I was wondering if you were able to locate any data on Singapore or
Switzerland... I'm hoping to have figures for each country by tomorrow
night, so I'd be interested in your 1995 data while you're looking for
more recent figures...
thank you!

My apologies for not getting back to you sooner.

Singapore: 1995 27%

I am having a bit of difficulty with Switzerland, but will find it.

I really regret giving the five star rating so hastily.  If I had
carefully read your answer, I would have seen that your answer was
incomplete, missing the data requested from Switzerland and Singapore.
 I've been waiting for a month for this information, have already
paid, so could you please finish this job?
Thank you.
