In 1896, though previously unreported in Germany, 107 cases were registered there, and the number rose to 295 in 1900, and 1030 in 1901.
Of particular importance are the number of rapes and sexual assaults that go unreported, especially in adolescents.
Unreported rape and sexual assault are especially common when the offender is known to the victim, such as a family member or respected member of the community (e.g., clergy, teacher).
Some small colonies that were previously unoccupied or unreported may therefore have been missed.
