Bjorn Hanson, principal of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (retiring effective June 30, 2008), also gave us an update of his version of this data, and Bjorn was kind enough to share his graphics with me.

Then, as you can see from the chart, everything changed in 2002 after 9-11 when the correlation plunged to .2 in 2002, rose to .5 in 2003, got to 1.01 in 2004, and has wobbled a bit the past few years, but still at a very high level of correlation or direct relationship. (Bjorn says that any correlation higher than .05 is statistically significant.)
Here is another of Bjorn Hanson's charts that illustrates the relationship a different way.
