Question to all listserv members doing contract work (W-2,1099,etc.)

Going into a job, what is the average stated anticipated duration of a TW contract assignment.

A recruiter from the Boston area recently told me that 99% of all contract jobs are initially for three months, but that the majority are subsequently boosted-up to a duration of six months or more. How does this sound?

Note: I have read that the average stated duration going into a contract job is six months.
