Saw Question

What span of time does the saw series take place over?

Me and my sister got into an argument about this last night. She said that it must have been over three years ("because there was too much going on")

But i think it is a little over a year. Gideon was supposed to have been born in the year of the boar, which was in 2006, and John died in 2007, so the time between the 1st & 5th movie must have been a year and 3 months.
I know that the events of the second film took place 4 months after the first, the events of the 3rd film took place 6 months after that, the 4th film was simultaneous with the 3rd, and the 5th film immediately proceeded it.

So i think it was a year or a little over it, but feel free to correct me if i'm wrong.

The Jigsaw Killer's "diabolic games" were once said to have been going on for years, this is implied a bit on the final movie.

John Kramer became Jigsaw when Chinese were celebrating the year of the pig, it has happened in 1983, 1995, 2007, etc.

The whole series has a late nineties feel to it, like if it were a Law and Order spin-off. I think it'd be a bit accurate to say these events happened between 1995 - 2002 or so... maybe.
