Estimating the Incidence of Rape and Sexual Assault

This new report, from the National Academies, recommends best methods for measuring and obtaining statistics on rape and sexual assault. The report assesses the quality and relevance of current statistics from the National Crime Victimization Survey and other surveys and examines issues such as the legal definitions in use by states and ways to obtain more complete reporting in surveys.

These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on November 19, 2013 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
