Effect of Dividends Reinvested on US Stock Returns since 1871

Another version of my stock graph. Instead of the nominal price index from yesterday's post, I am comparing real price index to the real total return (price change with dividends reinvested) since 1871. Both series are adjusted for inflation. Annualized growth rate of since 1871: Real total return with dividends reinvested = 6.2%  Real stock price return = 1.9%
