It seems that more people are getting taken recently, than in previous years. A few years ago we had the largest rainfall ever recorded in the Top End. My theory is that the floodwaters reached areas that had previously never seen large amounts of water, this allowed crocs to move into areas that people who have lived there for eons would never expect crocs to inhabit. Also of course there are many more crocs around these days because there is no culling. I guess more indigenous people live side by side with crocs and are more likely to come face to face with them.
