Default Why does the rape rate seem so high in Vancouver?

We are considering relocating from Kansas City to PDX/Vancouver. Kansas City has a very high crime rate. My husband is a police officer so we are well aware of the true crime situation in our city. Reading over the crime rates for the PDX/Vancouver area make the crime situation seem fantastic. However, I've noticed the rape rate for Vancouver seems really high compared to other relatively low crime rates for the city and compared to PDX. Does anyone have any explanation for it? Just curious.

Sexual frustration among the men who don't have the time to cross the bridge and patronize one of Portland's many gentlemen's clubs?

A non-victim is a woman who hasn't reported being raped.

I don't have a good explanation of why the incidence of rape is high in Vancouver. I was merely reporting a statistical observation reported by some official.

My sister that works in a hospital in northern Washington said that 75% of those tested in the hospital for drug use have used drugs and many have more than one drug in their blood or urine.

Probabably because of the broad definition Clark county uses for rape, the dictionary implies rape as a violent act with the use of force, the definition here is contact or penetration of ones privates and force is not a consideration, so if any of you have ever touch the privates of another and there were more then 2 yrs differences in your ages, you are a rapist according to the countys definition.
