What's also interesting is that small dioceses tend to have higher percentages of ordained. Even more interesting that it seems like bishops, regardless of ideology (perceived or otherwise) who make recruiting and discernment a personal effort, tend to be successful. How else to account for the recent ordinations in Saginaw, Erie, Newark and even LA?

I find it intriguing that not only did about 1 out of 6 (17%) of this year's diocesan ordinands live for less than one year in the dioceses for which they will be ordained before they entered the seminary, but that last year's class had a similar statistic.

One has to wonder why such a large group of men apparently felt their home dioceses to be unsuitable places in which to respond to their vocations.
