Vanguard's target allocation returns appear lower?

When checking Portfolio Watch at the VG web site I decided to review the target allocation page for preset stock/bond ratios and I would swear the historical returns have all been lowered about 1%. Does anyone else see this and know why?

At some point Vanguard switched from using 1960-present to using 1926-present for its historical data. This may explain your observation.
Best wishes,
