September 9, 2012:
The primary author of this site, Patrick Rhodes, is now doing more contract work. Thus, Graph of the Week isn't being updated on a weekly basis as in the past. He'll try to keep putting content up here at least once per month, however.
If you are a writer who has the skills to produce graphs like what you've seen here with a good story behind it, we take submissions. There is no pay involved, but it helps to get your name out there (as it did with Patrick, hence the contract work).
