I didn't realize we were in 2010.

I wonder what this graph would look like for "insurance individuals" that includes actuaries, underwriters, claims adjusters, etc.

Yeah, because the best way to get high-quality labor is to dilute your candidate pool. I highly doubt it is the main variable in building these lists.
