does anyone on the list have some  figures for the actual number of menb
that were practicing polygamy, versus the total number of marriage age men
in the church during that time?

just my opinion-- just because the practice may be legal in a country does
not mean that the church will authorize its members in that country to
follow the practice. not exactly comparable, but I recall President
Hinckley, in a Priesthood meeting, telling the brethren that when you join
the church, you leave behind (are supposed to) any customs or practices
that are not in keeping with church doctrine.
