Average moves per solve?

From 20 slow solves:
11.45 moves for cross+1.
18.55 moves for the rest of F2L.
17.4 moves for LL (8/20 ZBLL, 12/20 2LLL).
Average 47.4 moves (standard error 1.1) for the whole solve.

(For the most part, I used the 11-move RU U perms instead of the 9-move optimal algs, so these could have been lower if I was trying to do linear FMC solves.)

I know my move counts in slow solves and my move counts in speedsolves are very different; I remember the last time I tried reconstructing my own solves, I was getting around 60 moves even though averaging below 50 moves in slow solves is ezpz. I might try recording an ao50 and reconstructing all of those to see if I've improved since. (Dang, this would be so much easier with one of those newfangled smart cubes.)

edit: I just remembered, I reconstructed an OH ao12 I did before. 51.7 moves, 22.00 seconds. It was really lucky though, and probably not very representative.

Average movecount of 7 solves:
35.8 moves for F2L (ZZ with EOLine).
18 moves for LL (5/7 ZBLL).
54 moves total.

These were slowish solves but I tried to do what I would do in a speedsolve. There were a few instances where I could have canceled into LL and saved a move or two but I wouldn't have noticed in a speedsolve so I didn't.
For the two solves without ZBLL, I used the 7 move MU Uperm.

I might try to do actual speedsolves with recons to see true movecounts later. I average pretty close to 11.5.

I tried to reconstruct an ao5, got 3 solves in and gave up, but here are my results as far as I know:
Solve 1: 57 (49 with ZBLL), 8.58
Solve 2: 47, 7.46
Solve 3: 61 (52 with ZBLL), 9.83
Solve 4: ?, 10.77
Solve 5: ?, 8.56
From those 3 solves, it shows that using ZBLL drops a significant amount off my solves, so when I learn it, I will be averaging low 50s or fewer in speedsolves.

I was wondering what the average amount of moves used per solve is in correlation with a person's average time? I average about 15-17 seconds, and use on average 55-65 (63 ao12) moves per solve. What about everyone else? If I get enough responses, I might compile this into a table for everyone else to compare to.
I average 13-14 and 60 moves per solve with CFOP (Full PLL and almost full OLL)
