Update needed

The annual updates required to keep this current seem to have lapsed. Bogleheads® forum post: "The Callan Periodic Table of Investment Returns", LadyGeek covers 2018 but the link in the first post is a dead link. The source is Periodic Table - Callan but they don't seem to make past year's chart available from what I can determine. --Peculiar Investor 03:57, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

I have revised the table and supporting spreadsheets for 2019. I have also received permission to reproduce the table from Callan associates for 2020 and onward (from the Vice President, Communications & Marketing, Callan LLC). --LadyGeek 21:28, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks. One follow-up question, in the Forum discussions section you've linked a topic that announces the update but has no other posts. Shouldn't a forum topic only be linked when significant discussion has actually occurred? --Peculiar Investor 15:00, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
Follow-up answer. I was hoping there would be responses after I added the link. In any case, it documents that I posted a topic for the 2019 update. I don't think it hurts anything to leave the link in place. --LadyGeek 01:01, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
The topic has become an active discussion. There's no need to consider its removal. --LadyGeek 18:49, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

Putting the table into perspective section has display width problems on tablets and smartphones.

The second spreadsheet widget (Callan Periodic Table 2017: Statistics) in the Putting the table into perspective uses a width and height that far exceed the 500x300 default. This significantly distorts the page flow on an iPad Pro in landscape mode. It is almost unusable on a smartphone in either orientation. It should be reviewed for improvement. --Peculiar Investor 04:07, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

The spreadsheet and table dimensions have been revised. --LadyGeek 21:28, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
