The panel was charged with recommending best methods for obtaining survey statistics on rape and sexual assault on household surveys of the Input devices 5 examples of sexual harassment of Justice Statistics BJS. In reviewing all of the material presented earlier in this report, the panel thinks that it is highly likely that the National Crime Victimization Survey NCVS is underestimating rape and sexual assault.
