Bankruptcy Charts

25 01 2010

Below are early graphs of my Bankruptcy data project.

The data seems pretty straight forward at first.  Bankruptcies slowly climb upward from early 2008.  Divorces stayed fairly steady and the Federal funds rate and employment statistics are too small to contribute significantly to this chart.   However the next chart examines the same numbers with the log value of each one.

Notice the complete collapse of the Fed rate.  This is in connection with the economic recession and intended  lowering of interest rates.  The log version shows the Bankruptcy and Divorce data almost converging.    It will be interesting to see how the regression analysis runs with this data.

The data is from the following sources:
