I think the drop in abuse cases is most likely caused by the aging of the clergy.

A 95% reduction, suddenly occurring in a few short years is simply because of the aging of the priest population? If the frquency of abuse rounded off then slowly drifted down, perhaps even gradually picking up speed, that would make sense. But rising to a peak, then immediately collapsing 95%? It just can't be.
