I've done data entry before.

15000+ = You're a demon
12500 = Great! You're fast
10000 = Ok that's good enough for hiring
8750 = Your accuracy better be through the roof
5000 = You missing a finger?

You don't need to be super fast. In many jobs, demonstrating attention to details is more important. KPH is important in jobs where all you do is type.
