Markov stats of your passwords would be interesting to me, with the vanilla stats file and with stats file you could have trained on your corpus. My "real world" passwords were usually REALLY weak. In organisations where stronger policies were set, all users tended to share the same passwords. Even worse, when a default password was provided and users were invited to change it at first login, they usually selected a password that looked alike. When there is an expiration policy, they just appended numbers. The only hard passwords were for admin passwords, with the exception of application passwords (backup/backup for the win).
