BY THE NUMBERS: SEXUAL ASSAULT STATISTICS (2018, USA)

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and I couldn’t let the month pass without sharing some important statistics around sexual assault. They’re not the most fun stats, but they’re very important.

1 in 5 women will be raped within their lifetime.

51%+ of female rape victims were raped by an intimate partner.

1 in 71 men will be raped within their lifetime.

52%+ of male rape victims were raped by an acquaintance.

An estimated 17.7M women have been raped since 1998.

21% of trans college students have been sexually assaulted.

American Indians are twice as likely to experience sexual assault than other races.

49%+ of multiracial women will experience sexual assault in their lifetime.

Women and men with intellectual disabilities are seven times more likely to be the victims of sexual assaults than women and men without intellectual disabilities.

80.6K inmates in jails and prisons experience sexual violence.
