Lies , damned lies and statistics. statistics can appear to support just about any position you care to name. It depends upon your definitions and which figures you use. Out of context figures, even those from the world fact book are just another way to be wrong with confidence. e.g. you quoted 80% as working in service industries, but people are who work in service industries lose their livelihood just as effectively as those who work directly in an industry if that form of employment disappears.
