Rape Statistics by Country

Rape is an act of sexual violence committed by someone against another nonconsenting person. It is a jailable and hideous offense and causes great harm to the victims, both physical and mental. It is a global phenomenon and is generally higher in centers where there are a majority of males or where there is a lower level of education. However, rape is not always done by a male on a female, as there are many cases of the opposite that occur but often go unreported. And therein likes the difficulty of assessing rape statistics as a whole. 

Each country has a different standard for what classifies as rape. Furthermore, there could be several cases that simply go unreported or are silently ignored, either due to the lack of competency of the authorities or because of societal pressure. Therefore, the number of rape crimes could be much higher than the statistics reported, making it harder for data scientists to identify trends or patterns. 

If you would like to learn more about rape statistics by country, please refer to the data in the map and charts.
