The results may have been skewed by distribution of Reblooming Society
members. Two factors come into play -- first, to even GET reports a certain
threshold number of members must be passed. Only about one in ten take the
bother to send in a report and when a states total membership is 3 to 7 --
you just might not have that conscientious '1 in 10 ' individual.

Second, to draw meaningful conclusions from the data it would have to be
population normed. In other words, 3 responses from a population of 47
Reblooming Society members is far poorer than 2 responses from 7 members.

"Statistics lie real good."
