skin numbers

I know Caucasian skin tone numbers for CMYK, and have only a general idea of other ethnicities. Books only tend to say "more cyan in african americans," while Caucasians get more specific like a 1/3rd to a 1/5th cyan of Magenta. Do you know of more specific examples for other skin tones, or somewhere that does???

Re: skin numbers

An excellent example is listed Katrin Eisman's Restoration and Retouching; third edition page124
