Earlier this week 28-year-old New Zealand author Eleanor Catton was announced as the winner of the 2013 Man Booker Prize for her second novel, The Luminaries. This is the last year that entry in the prize will be limited to British, Irish and Commonwealth writers. From 2014 the rules will be amended with any novel that is written in English and released in Britain being eligible for the award.

For anyone with an eye on the prize for 2014 and beyond, these charts were compiled by Adam Frost and James Kynvin for the Guardian. They looked at more than 40 years’ worth of data to find the formula for Man Booker prize success.
