Study: 89% of colleges reported zero campus rapes in 2015

Most U.S. colleges -- 89% -- reported zero incidents of rape in 2015, according to American Association of University Women (AAUW) analysis of data provided by schools to the U.S. Department of Education.

Reported is the key word. Just because a school had no rape reports doesn't mean no rapes happened.

AAUW's findings very likely do not reflect the true state of sexual violence among college students, since a majority of incidents go unreported. In fact, a 2014 report by the U.S. Department of Justice estimated that 80% of student victims don't report their rape or sexual assault to police, based on data from 19952013.

Still, the 2015 AAUW report isn't as rosy as the previous year's. In 2014, 91% of schools reported zero rapes, based on annual crime data disclosed by more than 11,000 colleges and universities.

1. Welcome to DU.

Allow me to recommend your post.

All part of the culture of devaluing women, and attacking those who are brave enough to report it.
