Although dated, this BJS report on sex offenses draws on more than two dozen statistical datasets to provide a comprehensive overview about the prevalence of sexual assault, the response of the criminal justice system to such crimes, and the characteristics of those who commit sexual assault or rape. This web page of the BJS, a bureau of the U.S. Department of Justice, includes a search function that can lead to other reports, backgrounders and statistics on sexual assault–although, again, many are dated.
