The lie about the prevalence of sexual assault in the United States is widespread and deeply ingrained in American society, and it is also deeply problematic.
But when it comes to the statistics on sexual assault, the truth is in between.
While the rate of sexual violence is generally lower than the general population, it is still a problem.
So what are the facts?
In this series of articles, National Geographic editors take a closer look at the prevalence and nature of sexual misconduct and violence in the US, and their impact on women and survivors.
To begin, we start with the facts: Who is raped?
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that in 2013, approximately 12 percent of women in the U.C.I.V.D. report being raped.
This is a relatively small number, but it is significantly higher than the national average of 8 percent.
(That’s a higher percentage than for any other age group.)
Rape is a crime that happens to women.
But what about men who are sexually assaulted by women?
There are some important differences in the ways men and women are victims of sexual abuse.
The sexual assault survivor is not the only one who suffers from a crime.
Many men have been sexually assaulted in the past, but they are rarely the victims.
According to the National Center for Victims of Crime, the vast majority of sexual assaults are committed by men, and men are about twice as likely as women to report being the perpetrators.
While women are more likely to be the victims of assault in general, they are also more likely than men to report their assailants.
As a result, women’s reports of being raped are often dismissed, and in some cases are disbelieved.
When women report a crime, they do so often because of a culture that assumes that women are always the aggressors.
For example, the National Institute of Justice estimates that one in four women in prison is sexually assaulted.
The problem is that these numbers are based on a very small number of sexual crimes, and are not necessarily representative of all women who experience sexual violence.
In addition, it’s not clear whether or not these numbers reflect the true rate of victimization.
So, what do we know about the true prevalence of rape?
When we look at a specific statistic, we have to ask a few questions.
What does the definition of rape look like?
What do we mean by the term “assault”?
What does “sexual violence” mean?
How do we determine the “incidence rate,” or the percentage of women who have been raped?
And how can we determine how to respond to sexual assault?
We can answer these questions by asking some of the most basic questions: Are women raped at a higher rate than men?
What are the prevalence rates of rape, and how are they calculated?
And are the rates of sexual offenses higher in certain states, cities, and rural areas than in others?
To understand these issues, we’ll first examine some of these key statistics, and then take a look at how they fit together to create a comprehensive picture.
First, we need to get a definition of “rape.”
In general, rape is defined as the forcible and/or the threat of force, violence, or control against a person by another person who is incapable of giving consent, unless the offender knows or reasonably should have known that the person to be violated is incapable.
If a woman is raped, for example, her assailant may be the perpetrator, but the victim may also be the victim.
Rape is also sometimes called forced sex, but that term has historically been used in the context of domestic violence, which is a form of sexual coercion.
But rape is also a form.
Rape happens to both men and men to women, and rape occurs to both males and females.
What is “nonconsensual intercourse” and how does it vary from state to state?
The definition of sexual intercourse is complicated by definitions of sexual contact.
“Nonconsensual contact” includes kissing, hugging, groping, touching, and touching of the genitals.
But there is also nonconsensual sexual activity that is not sexual.
For instance, touching the breasts of someone who is not a sexual partner.
And the sexual act is not defined in a way that it can be considered rape, even if it is forcible.
For that matter, some people have argued that rape is not rape because it is not an act that is done with force, but rather it is consensual, as long as the person involved agrees to the act.
Is the prevalence higher in some areas than others?
The National Center on Sexual Violence and Victims estimates that nearly half of all female college students are sexually abused at some point in their lives.
About two-thirds of these incidents are committed against women, while the other third of these cases are committed without a victim.
But these numbers don’t tell the whole story.
For one, some states are more violent than others when it came to
