What caused the sudden increase in 2005? Was the variable redefined or taken from another data source?
What is the breakdown by male/female?
why start the graph post tech bubble – Im betting 2000 is the high point
The default Census applet reports 10 years of data; I’m guessing that when this was done, one or more of the relevant variables hadn’t reported for 2012, and 2011 was the latest year available – and what’s 10 years before 2011? 2001. Poking through the interface, it seems the data doesn’t even go back before 2000, but I’m not sure (bls.gov is hard to use).
