*Ok I will admit it, I made a mistake, I had originally posted material that contained the wrong data set. I accidentally posted the old 2002 data I had instead of the newest 2009 data (which was released in Dec. 16, 2010). I was wrong, thank you to those who pointed it out to me! Here is the updated material.
