From January 2005 through 2015:
- Rape rates fluctuated, but were generally lower by 2015 than they were in 2005.
- Rape was most prevalent in neighborhoods historically beset by violent crime, including the North Side, Homewood and the Hill District.
- Victims of rape were disproportionately young, African American and female.
- Rape clearance rates were higher than those of comparable cities, but varied depending on method of assault, time of year and victim demographics.
