DV/IPV Sexual Assault

US Crime Statistics, 2016

For those of you who teach, write grants, etc., the FBI has just released the US Crime Statistics for 2016. You’ll find your general violent crime stats here; human trafficking (which has been broken out from the other stats) here. There is also a specific addendum that addresses the changes in the UCR definition of rape that you can review here. It’s helpful in understanding how things have evolved, but keep in mind, we’re still only talking about reported cases…
