How long does it take WordPress users to update?

I’m sure someone, somewhere has done a scientific study of how long it takes an average WordPress user to update either their WordPress installation or their plugins, but after releasing a point upgrade to my minuscule plugin about 3 weeks ago, it’s only just got to 47% of users upgraded.

Some people raising support issues also seem to be a couple of point upgrades behind on WordPress itself. They may have good reasons for that, I don’t know individual use cases.

Given how high profile security holes in WordPress are, and how easy upgrades are, this is something of a revelation – for me at least.
