Hafsaka (break in the sequence of the Four Parshiyot) between Sh’qalim and Zachor, 88.5% of the time. Between Zachor and Para, 39.5%. Never between Para and HaChodesh.

The Four Parshiyot span five Shabbatot 72% of the time; six Shabbatot, 28% of the time. Sh’qalim ‘belongs’ to Purim (and a bit to Nissan).
