Recent article and DOJ Statistics released in a report.
The news article is here.
In fact, non-students are 25 percent more likely to be victims of sexual assault than students, according to the data. And the real number of assault victims is several orders of magnitude lower than one-in-five.
Emphasis added by me.
The full study, which was published by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, a division within DOJ, found that rather than one in five female college students becoming victims of sexual assault, the actual rate is 6.1 per 1,000 students, or 0.61 percent (instead of 1-in-5, the real number is 0.03-in-5). For non-students, the rate of sexual assault is 7.6 per 1,000 people.
Emphasis added again.
Note that the feminists and neckbeards aren't just exaggerating a little; they're making believe that it's thirty times worse than it really is.
The full data is here (pdf link). It has a few interesting points.
Figure 3. The data combines threats, sexual assaults, attempted rapes, and completed rapes. Note that when the data is broken down, college students not only have lower victimization rates than non-students, a significantly smaller percentage (33% vs 40%) of their victimizations were actually completed rapes.
Table 3. Note that in college, rape of males is actually worse than it is outside of college, a reversal of the female statistics. Fully one sexual assault out of every six on a college campus, the victim is MALE.
Table 7. The vast majority of the time (95%), the assault is carried out by a single offender, as opposed to "two or more" or "unknown number." Unfortunately the DOJ stats didn't include a category for "eight attackers, all in the same fraternity," so that we could see how rare those were.
Table 8. The percentage of respondents who didn't report because they were "advised not to" is so rare as to be unmeasurable, statistically speaking.
