White Collar Crime - Up and Down

Trac Reporting here is saying that white collar crime prosecutions for November 2009 show a decrease of 25.0% from the prior month.  But on the other hand, when compared with a year ago, it is up 6.6 % and the percent change from 5 years ago is 18.6. (including magistrate court). The most telling increase is seen in the number of convictions.  Matched with 5 years ago, it is up 24.9% (see here). But again, these statistics need to be examined carefully. (see here and here), especially with regard to how the term "white collar crime" is defined.
