Government dense document discovery

Earle Spamer has begun looking for especially dense government documents. He found one that has a special kind of density. Investigator Spamer writes:

This document ["How Does POSSLQ Measure Up? Historical Estimates of Cohabitation," by
Lynne M. Casper, Philip N. Cohen, and Tavia Simmons] is the current record-holder for an official government document with the most-repeated acronym and the highest monoacronymical density.  There are 8373 words in the document, including title and references, of which 168 are the repeated acronym "POSSLQ".  The monoacronymical density thus is a whopping 0.5 percent.  The document has three authors, making the density distribution 56 occurrences per author.
