simple, so it just goes to show you, it's all in the perspective. :-)
As far as implications -- well, it's pretty simple, really. I'm
trying to build a case to add a half-time person to the finance dept
in my own organization, because I'm overloaded to the breaking point.
I wanted to see how my own situation stacked up against others, at
least on a fairly superficial level.
Should anyone else want to add their two cents after looking at the
table I built on the database page, feel free. If other organizations
add information, I'll go back in and adjust the mean and median numbers.
