Sweden: Sex Crimes Have Tripled Since 2014

The number of Swedes reporting to have been victims of sexual crimes has tripled between 2014 and 2018, according to a report by the Swedish Crime Prevention Council Brå.

The report reveals that in 2018, around six per cent of the Swedish population between the ages of 16 and 84 say they had been victims of sexual offences, a total of around 482,000 people. 

The percentage is a slight decrease from the previous year, which saw 6.4 per cent of Swedes claiming to have been victims of sex crimes. However, it marks a tripling of the 2014 figure, which was just two per cent.

Between 2006 and 2012, the number of reported sex attack victims remained under two per cent, with a low of 1.4 per cent in 2011.

Women had a much higher rate of reported sex attacks with 9.9 per cent — around one in ten — saying they had been a victim in 2018, compared to just 1.6 per cent of men.
