"A thorough analysis of federal data published earlier this year by Corey Rayburn Yung, associate professor at the University of Kansas School of Law, concludes that between 1995 and 2012, police departments across the country systematically undercounted and underreported sexual assaults.
Tyler Kingkade takes on recent assertions from conservative commentators that the campus rape epidemic isn't an epidemic at all.
He wrote, "In research on police prosecution of sexual assaults, Corey Rayburn Yung, an associate law professor at the University of Kansas, concluded that nearly 1 in 4 police departments responsible for populations of at least 100,000 persons are undercounting rape reports."

"On March 4, University Associate Law Professor Corey Rayburn Yung, published an article in the Iowa Law Review entitled 'How to Lie with Rape Statistics: America’s Hidden Rape Crisis.'
The article analyzes the undercounting of rape statistics in 46 cities in the U.S. with a population of more than 100,000 people, estimating that about 800,000 to 1.2 million 'complaints of forcible vaginal rapes of female victims nationwide disappeared from the official records from 1995 and 2012.'
