-400024162$1091.0%850000%White background = data/estimates from scholarly sources.

Grey background = My rough guess based on the scholarly literature I reviewed.

For more details, see "Explanations" sheet.

The 'Year' column is duplicated many times and then hidden because Google Sheets can't reliably generate charts from data in non-adjacent columns.

To see all variables (except adult male height, which is included here but not in my report) graphed on the same chart, see https://jsfiddle.net/lukeprog/3k77r1j7/11/
