I am so over Excel charts! This is my last chart for a while folks.
Since the NCMEC June 2016 Map came out yesterday, the per capita chart I made during the 2016 Virginia GA session per the request of a Virginia Delegate needed to be revised.
NCMEC gives the 100,000 per capita numbers but that really doesn’t mean much to most folks, they need something a bit more tangible. So I took the idea from my Virginia State Police Registry Growth chart where I calculate 1 out of every Adult Male in the State.
Now, not every Registered Sex Offender is a Male, in
approximately 5% of the VSP
Registry is female. Virginia
Also not every Registered Sex Offender is an adult; there are juveniles in most States who are Registered Sex Offenders. Plus there are States with Private Registries and NCMEC doesn’t state anywhere if their official count is including juveniles or private lists. Finally NCMEC claims their Registered Sex Offender count does NOT include incarcerated Registered Sex Offenders, well what about civilly committed SVP’s? We don’t know.
So this Per Capita Chart (see below) is as good as the NCMEC data is.
There aren’t any big changes in per capita since December 2015 but I’ve included that chart too for anyone who is interested in comparing them.
Numerous States went up and down 1-2 spots including
we’re now #22 for RSO per capita. One
out of every 376 person is an RSO and one out of every 141 Adult Male is a
Registered Sex Offender. Just remember these are NCMEC’s number, not the
Virginia State Polices annual numbers whom I trust to be more accurate and they
include incarcerated RSO’s. Virginia
