Sweden: Rape Reports up 10 Per Cent in 2017

Newly released figures from the Swedish criminal statistics agency Brå have shown that reported rape cases have increased by 10 per cent in 2017 and the country saw some 1.5 million crimes in total.

An average of 20 rape incidents were reported per day in Sweden in 2017 for a total of 7,230 cases according to the newly released statistics. Other sexual crimes also increased last year including sexual abuse and exploitation which went up by seven per cent. Sexual assault was up 3 per cent resulting in a total of 10,300 cases, Expressen reports.


A total of 1.5 million crimes were reported in 2017 but the statistics agency claims that the true number is likely higher as not all crimes are reported.


Some private individuals and groups have attempted to collect the ethnic data of criminals like legal search engine Lexbase. In response to the site’s activities, Minister Johansson said the government would be restricting access to the site to professionals only.
