Annotation: This report presents statistics on rapes that occurred in Arkansas in 1994 using data from the State Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program and a special supplement that allows the collection of additional information on each rape and attempted rape.
Abstract: This report uses the UCR definition of rape, which covers the forcible carnal knowledge of a female victim against her will; assaults to commit forcible rape are also included but statutory rape without force is not. In 1994, there were 1,026 reported rapes and attempted rapes in Arkansas; while the figures are comparable to those in 1993, they represent an 11 percent increase from 1989 and a 48 percent increase from 1982. Statistics are presented for rape by time of day, by day of week, and by month; victim characteristics; weapons used; victim-offender race relationship; location; involvement of family members; reporting time lapses, suspect information; and medical attention for victims.
Main Term(s): Statistics
