    One thing that is worth pointing out is that the decade is not actually over yet. Just as 2000 was the last year of the 20th Century and not the first year of the 21st, so 2010 is the last year of the decade now concluding, not the first year of the next. The reason is simple: one starts counting with “1” not “0.”

    Alternatively, a standard definition of decade is a period of ten years, without regard to when the ten-year period begins or ends, so the decade just ended last week is the the one that began in 2000.
