Wow, you’ve got to click over to this interactive graphic the New York Times created today based on the newest Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller data.

Savvy readers might notice the Times graph for San Diego looks different from this graph that Sam Hodgson updates once a month with the new data. The Times graph represents the year-over-year changes in price since 2001.

A couple of interesting things to look for in the Times graph:

  • Compare San Diego’s highest year-over-year increase (mid-2004) of about 34 percent with the year-over-year spikes in Phoenix and Las Vegas of more than 50 percent.
  • Note how San Diego’s declines started before the national composite index started to trend downward.
