I'm looking over a dozen four-leaf clovers

What's the proportion of four-leaf clovers among white clover?

So I seeded some white clover in my back yard last year in the hopes of getting something to grow (grass has trouble it seems). So everything is looking good now. Oddly, between my daugther and myself we've pulled about a dozen four-leaf clovers out of the lawn this year. Which seems sort of unusually high. Has there ever been a study of the rate of four-leaf clovers? Is this a typical event whose frequency could be predicted by genetics?
White clover has the more rounded leaves and not the heart-shaped ones if it matters.
