Rape Rates in the United States (by State)
This page catalogues information about rape rates per 100,000 population in the United States by demographics. By using rape rate instead of total number of rapes in a country, it gives us a better understanding of how common rapes are in a particular country. For example, 100 total rapes in a town of 1,000 people would produce a very high rape rate of 10,000 per 100,000 population. But 1,000 total rapes in a country of 1 million people, while a higher total number of rapes would result in a lower rape rate of 100 per 100,000 population.
