Rather than wait until I find a polling tool that can divide as well as count, let’s use our everyday match skills to get a sense of the percentage of rematches AMONG AuPairMom readers.
[Remember, this is a poll of the special group of host parents that reads AuPairMom. Our results will not be the same as the results in the general population of host families, b/c we are not average host families < wink > ]
In the meantime I’ll look for a better tool.

Please tell us how many matches your family has had (where the au pair actually ended up coming to the US). Then, tell us how many rematches you’ve had.
Both of these replies are absolute numbers… then we use our math skills to calculate a running percentage… (by adding up all the matches, and the rematches, and dividing the one into the other).
July 2,with 33 responses, 19% . Yikes!
July 5, with 65 responses, 39% 208 matches, 83 rematches.
Remember, it’s a *rough & dirty* estimate]
