Rape Statistics by State

Rape is a global problem and serious crime, however the amount of rapes that occur, in the United States at least, declined between 2019—2020. Rape is defined as forcible or unwanted sexual penetration by one person to another, usually, but not always under the threat of injury. 

Since 1992, across the United States, the amount of rapes that occur each year has been consistently declining almost every year. That trend of decline continued until 2012, where rapes in the United States reached their recent lowest point, at 84,175. Between 2012—2018, the rate of rape increased every year, until again beginning a decline in 2019.

In 2019 within the United States the total number of rapes that occurred and were reported was 143,224. The following year, in 2020, the number of rapes dropped to 126,430, according to data from Statista.
