Statistics on Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence
In order to have a comprehensive understanding of how often sexual and relationship violence are occurring on college campuses and in the U.S., it’s best to review multiple sources. This includes a review of studies that look at self-disclosed experiences or the number of cases that are reported to the criminal justice system or to Title IX Offices at Universities. Comparisons between studies can prove difficult with differences in questions and methodologies and there are still gaps in research with historically marginalized communities.
