Questions about the Practice of Zakat

We have a few questions about how Zakat works in different countries.

1. Do most Muslims give Zakat as prescribed?
2. Is it usually given directly or through an organization?
3. For those who give to an organization, are there choices in which
   organization to give to?
4. Are there differing interpretations of Zakat?
5. What is the best source for more information about Zakat?  Websites,
   books, etc.

If you have answers to any of these questions we would be interested in hearing from you.  

Thank you.
