    When looking at these statistics and numbers, it’s important to keep in mind that they are based on every individual nations own laws, and comparing Sweden who have one of, if not the, most widely laws on the subject to any country on the opposite end, would be like comparing a tricycle with a Lambo, it just won’t give very accurate numbers. Fact is, Sweden reformed its sex crime legislation and made the legal definition of rape much wider in 2005. The Swedish police record each instance of sexual violence in every case separately, leading to an inflated number of cases compared to other countries.
    Fact is, if Sweden used Germanys laws on the subject, Sweden and Germany would be on about exactly the same numbers.
