Extent, Nature, and Consequences of Rape Victimization: Findings From the
National Violence Against Women Survey.  By Patricia Tjaden and Nancy
Thoennes, January 2006

"More than 300,000 women and almost 93,000 men are raped annually,
according to the US National Violence Against Women Survey (NVAWS).
Researchers found differences in rape prevalence relating to age, gender,
and race/ethnicity, as well as other factors such as whether victims were
first raped as minors. Despite widespread public education, rape remains a
largely underreported crime; and despite increased levels of research over
the past few decades, significant gaps remain in understanding rape
victimization. This NIJ Special Report takes a detailed look at the NVAWS
findings and the researchers' recommendations for future research."
