The test delivery count would of course be useful, but also the kind of 
expenses and incomes of LPI; for example, if I see that LPI gives out 40% of 
its budget for participation to events, 25% for personnel and 15% for the 
preparation of exams, and another 20% for other promotional activities, and 
has 50% of income from sponsors and 50% from exams, I will model the Italian 
budget on similar assumptions, of course regarding if they make sense for 

Besides this, I think Evan Leibovitch got the point when he said that as 
non-profit entity LPI's financial records must be available for public 
I don't like to get involved in non transparent-organizations, because this 
is my "leisure" time, so I want to choose!
I can't understand why you have so much trouble making available these 
informations, If there is some "clever" reason please make it clear!
