3 pages

This report fulfills the mandate established by the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA; P.L. 108-79) that requires BJS to produce a report, not later than June 30 of each year, on BJS’s activities to collect data on prison rape. It is the 16th report in a series that began in 2009 and describes BJS’s data collection and developmental activities during 2023. The report details BJS’s efforts to measure the incidence and prevalence of rape and sexual assault in adult correctional and juvenile justice facilities, through three independent collections: the Survey of Sexual Victimization, the National Inmate Survey, and the National Survey of Youth in Custody. Estimates from these collections are not directly comparable.
