After over 150 5-player games on Spielbyweb that have reached the halfway point, I've tallied the sacrifice levels in the first 3 rounds.
Round 1 1.8 Caravans earn income 82% of the time
Round 2 1.8 Caravans earn income 88% of the time
Round 3 2.3 Caravans earn income 61% of the time
Overall Caravan return of 2.3 / 3 rounds.
There is a definite (and logical) grading of caravan income depending on how many farming / caravan provinces show up in round 1.
If there are 0 camel provinces, farmer income is around 6.5 on average. With 3 camel / 0 farmer provinces at the start, farmer income is less than 5 on average.
None of this is very surprising, though it does help quantify how useful a farmer / camel province might be in Round 1.
