An Analysis of Peace Corps Timelines

Since I have a half-day, I’ve been able to put together a graphic showing an assortment of Peace Corps timelines that I found when reading various blogs across the internet.

I threw out some of the timelines that weren’t complete, and ended up with a total of 17 that were usable. I tried to make the plot as accurate as possible, but in a couple instances I made some simple assumptions. For timeline entries written “July 2008″ for instance, I assumed July 1st. For now, I’ve only collected the data that I wanted, but in the future it would be nice to add a little more detail to the chart (the time for med. packet submission to med. clearance, for example).

I collected timeline data from the following sites (posted in the same order as in the plot):
