drop rate


Explanation:
Not that Word or Lotus dictionaries are always right, but in this case Lotus Word Pro doesn't mark drop-rate as wrong but when putting in droprate it offers drop rate as the correct phrase. Hope that helps.

Drop rate


Explanation:
Dear bill

I would suggest without dash. In the Business Oxford Dictionary compounds terms begining with drop do not appear with dash. Unfortunately it does not appear drop rate. But I am pretty sure it is without dash.

Good luck
