Information here was taken from many sources, and I cannot be 100% sure all of it is correct, but I have made my strongest effort to keep the data within a small margin of error. If you believe any of this data to be incorrect, and you have a verifiable source of new data, then please let me know, as I will be more then happy to update this table.
