FIDE Chess Rating Inflation

Update 2 Rod Edwards (27 June, 2014)

I have not yet heard a satisfactory explanation of the apparent inflation I noted in 2006. I have, however, updated the graph of average rating of the 11th to 50th ranked players up to June 2014. Curiously, there seems to be another inflationary burst starting around 2007.
