Do you have an averaged national1999 employee turnover rate? I know such a figure includes many influencingfactors, but it would suit my purposes well.

Turnover rates vary, ofcourse, by industry and company size. The average national turnover rate hovered around 1.3 percent per month(according to the Bureau of National Affairs, Inc.) during the second quarterof 1999.
This was an increaseover the record 1.1 percent seen by employers in 1998
