DescriptionThis dataset shows the statistics for reported rapes for the period 2003 - 2010 by country. The data also shows the rate expressed as rapes per 100,000 people. The "latest" column shows the most recent rate per country. It is important to note that this dataset only shows recorded rates and many countries do not publish this information (recorded as zero). Of course, rape is not always reported so actual instances may be much higher. Data sourced from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_statistics and country boundaries from http://www.sharegeo.ac.uk/handle/10672/124. GIS vector data. This dataset was first accessioned in the EDINA ShareGeo Open repository on 2012-09-13 and migrated to Edinburgh DataShare on 2017-02-21.
