Let me know if there’s other data I can help find. The below articles / tables are either from reputable places, or based off of reputable data. The ideal report here would be https://evansdata.com/reports/viewRelease.php?reportID=9, but it’s very costly (some reports say around $9,800), and I haven’t been able to get my hands on the data yet. Some of the reports below are based on the data in the report though.
