RE: ASD vs. LRFD

Title: ASD vs LRFD
I recently saw a graph that showed that ASD is more economical (from a material weight standpoint) than LRFD when the Dead load to Live load ratio is less than 1:5.  However, there was no explanation of how the graph was developed.  Has anybody seen anything like this?
