 100%-|
          |
  80%- |
          |
  60%- |                             n=75
          |                            ______         
  n=500
  40%- |      n=250             |         |          
_____  
          |     _____               |         |       
  |         |         n=364
  20%- |    |        |               |         |      
   |         |        ______
          |    |         |               |         |  
       |         |       |         |
    0%-|     |        |               |         |     
    |         |        |         |
