EEOC Releases Charge Statistics for FY 2012 - Flatline

The EEOC updated its table of charge statistics from FY 1997, now through FY 2012. You can read the press release here. Generally, the total number of charges flatlined, but edging ever-so-slightly downward. However, some categories still saw an increase in the past year, notably sex, disability, and retaliation. The "experts" attribute the overall decrease to the publication of Eric Meyer's blog . . . I remain skeptical.
