How does turnover in the Trump administration compare to previous administrations?

There have been a number of high-profile departures from the Trump administration for various reasons. For example: Michael Flynn, Hope Hicks, Rex Tillerson, Sean Spicer and many others. While this seems like a lot to me, I can't claim to have paid much attention to turnover in previous administrations. I'm curious to get some context and harder numbers on the topic.

Question: How has the rate of people leaving the current administration (for whatever reason) compared to previous administrations in the same time frame?

This could include White House Staff, Cabinet members and other political appointees whether or not they require Senate confirmation. Feel free to include extra details or groups of people in your answer if I have missed something. I would also welcome any comparison of the rate of dismissal versus resignation compared to previous administrations.
