Plot Description:

This app allows the arbitrary comparison of months against other months. When the period of months wraps around a new year, the app attempts to keep this situation straight with Dec and Jan following each other. The periods are combined together based on the year of the beginning month of each period. If there is a metric you wished to see added to this analysis, please let us know!
