What is the I-829 approval rate for the EB-5 program?

I am interested in an EB-5 regional center investment. However, I read in The Brookings Institution Report that stats on the percentage of conditional visa approvals which led to removal of conditions are not available (because regional centers are private enterprises that are not regulated by the government). Where can I go to find accurate information on how many I-526 and I-829 applications were approved for each regional center?

The overall approval percentage rate is available because USCIS publishes its numbers (filed, approval, denied). The historical I-829 approval rate is between 88% and 90%. The numbers are not broken down any further so data for each regional center is not publicly available.

Check this report by USCIS. It is quite explanatory:
