02. Violent Crimes: Sexual Offenses
13. Sexual Offences against girls
Number of "Girl Victims of a Sexual Offence", at the national level.
“SEXUAL OFFENCES AGAINST GIRLS" means "Crimes of a sexual nature committed against female children [according to the age defined by each country in the correspondent United Nations Survey on Crime Trends and Operations of Criminal Justice Systems (UN-CTS) Metadata section]. These crimes should include child pornography, procuring a child for prostitution, statutory rape of a person below the age of consent and other offences related to the sexual exploitation of children".
[Source: United Nations Survey on Crime Trends and Operations of Criminal Justice Systems (UN-CTS) 2015]
Note: Any cross-national comparison should be conducted with caution because of the differences that exist between the legal definitions of both "children" and offences in countries, the different methods of offence counting and recording and differences in the share of criminal offences that are not reported to or detected by law enforcement authorities.
