Account Stats Pt. 2

I wanted to know the various statistics regarding account types on LJ, but unfortunately, they don't make the numbers public anymore. So, I wrote a perl script to crawl userinfo pages and grab the account types of a random selection of them. Here are the results.

Population size: 7483488
Sample size: 4164

Confidence level: 99%
Confidence interval: ±2%

I seeded with shadesong, jwz, and vaginapagina, scraped every username from every page I saw, and randomly chose approximately 1/5th of all the distinct usernames seen.
