In 2014, there were 6,700 rapes reported to the Swedish police — or 69 cases per 100,000 population — according to the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå), which is an 11 percent increase from the previous year. The number of convictions have remained relatively unchanged since 2005, with approximately 190 convictions on average each year.
There have been several international comparisons made, placing Sweden at the top end of the number of reported rapes. However, police procedures and legal definitions vary widely across countries, which makes it difficult to compare rape statistics. For example, Sweden reformed its sex crime legislation and made the legal definition of rape much wider in 2005, which largely explains a significant increase in the number of reported rapes in the ten-year period of 2004-2013. The Swedish police also record each instance of sexual violence in every case separately, leading to an inflated number of cases compared to other countries.
Additionally, the Swedish police have improved the handling of rape cases, in an effort to increase the number of crimes reported.
Raised awareness and a shifting attitude of crimes against women in Sweden, which has been ranked as the number one country ingender equality may also explain the relatively high rates of reported rape.
