Collecting Data to See how Speedcubers Improve (with CFOP)

I was wondering how most speedcubers using CFOP improve to get from one level to another (i.e. if you improve from 20 seconds to 15 seconds, how much of that will be due to F2L and how much will be due to LL?). I want to collect data from people at a variety of levels on how much time they spend on each part of their solve. Anyone who wants to help should do an mean of between 12 and 50 solves with splits for Cross, F2L, OLL, and PLL (this is the "multi-phase" option under "timer" on cstimer). I'm hoping to collect as much data as possible from people at a variety of levels, so if you could share this with others that would be amazing. To start off the data, here's mine:

Total: 19.65
Cross: 2.77
F2L: 9.96
OLL: 3.14
PLL: 3.77

@Rouxers if you want to do similar splits for your method, I'll be happy to do what I can with the data if you can find enough people to have something substantial.

This is ao5 (Can do more if you’d like) for all the steps. I average 24 seconds. Color Netrual and 4LLL.

Total- 20.492
Cross- 2.068
F2l- 10.727
Oll- 3.594
PLL - 4.103

So do you want people who aren't sub-20 (or around sub-20) to post their splits now and report back later? Or do you want just a load of times from people at different speeds?
I was originally thinking just the latter, but doing the former also would be a good idea.
I average about 10 seconds and I can do the multi-phase ao100 if you need me to.
I wouldn't do that many solves, an ao50 would be plenty. Thanks!

Could you do enough to make it at least an ao12? I want to decrease uncertainty where possible.

This was a good average of 12 using multi-phase.

Total: 10.53
Cross: 1.30
F2L: 5.49
OLL: 1.77
PLL: 1.97

I just did an ao12, sorry. I didn't see the post until I posted the average.

From 20 solves:

Cross: 3.138
F2L: 7.401
OLL: 3.452
PLL: 2.064

(but also I don't normally strictly do cross then F2L and I use loads of random ZBLL + OLLCP and I sometimes do edge control so none of these splits really make sense)

Btw, I use Roux! For ao50 my splits were:

FB: 3.03
SB: 5.40
CMLL: 2.47
LSE: 3.34
Total: 14.26

Also, it might be interesting to watch large averages from fast Rouxers like Kian and Guroux to get their data as well.
