*Thompson and Yokota published Kids in Mind and Screenit data demonstrating an MPAA "ratings creep" over this period: Thompson, K. M., & Yokota, F. (2004). Violence, sex, and profanity in films: Correlation of movie ratings with content. Medscape General Medicine, 6, 3-54.

Also, please note that Kids in Mind revamped their ratings criteria about 1998, so earlier values may reflect that rather than actual differences in content. (According to their website they are going back and rerating older films, but it will take a while to update them all. And then they'll need to be updated here.)
