I was wondering if anyone has actual numbers. For either studios they work at, or know the numbers of.

(I had an interesting discussion with some friends, and we feel that number is REALLY low worldwide). Not including outsourcing houses.

If you know the actual numbers for any studios, let me know.

I am NOT trying to push any kind of agenda here, so please don't be mad at me. Also, I am not including the plethora of indie studios, contract positions, or temporary work situations in this (even though there are PLENTY).
