CAPA - Industry Standards (benchmarking)

I am in the Medical Device industry. I am looking for some bench marking information around what  a well rounded CAPA system Metric should look like. 


For example: What is the typical percentage of CAPA types in your CAPA System. For example: Random numbers here:

78% Corrective

14% Preventive

7% Internal Audit Corrections 

0% Internal Audit Preventive 

Is this typical of the Medical Device industry? or Pharma? Does this sound right?
