Dividends per share by year:

Companies that declare a dividend late in one calendar year, might pay it early in the next calendar year.
This page will show both dividends declared per year, as well as dividends paid per year, in case the latter makes it look as if there was a freeze or a decrease.
The second column shows dividends declared per year.
The third column shows the increase in dividends declared from one year to the next.
The fourth column shows dividends paid per year.
The fifth column shows the increase in dividends paid from one year to the next.

The number in parentheses is the number of non-special dividends declared/paid during that period.

How do I determine the "bumpiness" of a company?
Mathematically, I use the standard deviation around the arithmetic mean of the dividend raise percentages.
I have devised a "bumpiness metric" which will tell at a glance how smooth or bumpy a company's dividend history has been.
For you math geeks, the bumpiness is the standard deviation rounded to the nearest integer.
The result is a whole number that tells you whether a company's dividend history has been smooth or teeth-rattling.
