This chapter uses the data base to generate descriptive statistics. It shows that Haredi deviance and non-conformity increased continuously between 1948-1998. This increase is characterized by ups and down but with an overall upward trajectory. Most ups and downs are correlated economic, military, political events and with counter secular reactions. Analyzing the different groupings of events and affairs shows that the main category of Haredi infractions consists of violence.

Keywords:   crime, deviance, increase of deviance, recession, war
