Default Axle taper degree

Do all 32-53 Ford rear axles have the same degree of taper into the hub?
If so, what is the degree?

Is that from a Ford print or some other source? Some other things on Fords are 1.5 inches per foot, which is really close to 7 when you try to measure it. (I've stumbled over this previously, haven't got to the axles yet.)
