Sexual Assault Statistics in Canada
A numerical representation of the truth...
The above noted statistics have been taken from various studies across Canada. While the numbers can never be 100% accurate, a few key generalizations can be made:
1. Sexual assault is far more common than most would suspect.
2. Relatively few incidents of sexual assault are reported to the police.
3. Young and otherwise vulnerable women are most likely to be sexually abused.
4. Most sexual assaults are committed by someone close to the victim, not a stranger.
