Here’s a graph I constructed using Google’s Motion Graph gadget. It displays the changing production data for the fifteen largest cocoa producers between 1964/65 and 2002/03. The data was compiled by the Cocoa Producers Alliance and I downloaded that information a couple of years back. Unfortunately, the CPA no longer publishes production data.
Make sure the x-axis is set to time. I find that using the LOG scale for the y-axis makes the graph easier to see. It’s particularly enlightening to select one or two producers and follow their position over time.
