Great analysis, Robert -- the insight is dead-on. Curious if your data included Washington State filings as well -- I'd love to see that plot on the same graph to see how we're doing through this lens.

Thanks for the comments! The analysis covered all fifty states, and Washington was essentially flat throughout the period (2002-2012) with about 2.75% of the companies. In 2002 it had about 2.6% and in 2012 almost 3%. I plan to post a follow-up with more of this detail.
