I can email my full spreadsheet from May 2005 to May 2017 (20 different counts) to anyone who is interested, it’s just too wide to post on this blog as an image and attachments can not be loaded onto a blog. I also have every NCMEC Map (20) for anyone who is looking for them as NCMEC does not archive their past maps online to access or review.  

I have previously posted about the inconsistencies with NCMEC’s RSO maps/counts here, here, here here, here, here and here  with specific examples of their failures. Which is no real surprise when you consider the known false statement that NCMEC’s Ernie Allen made in 2010 to Congress……….that 100,000 convicted RSO’s are NOT registered and are missing across the U.S. If NCMEC claims it, it must be true so this falsehood has been repeated over and over again for years and everyone believes it, but it’s NOT true.

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 Virginia approximately 5% of the VSP Registry is female. 

Also not every Registered Sex Offender is an adult; there are juveniles in many States who are Registered Sex Offenders. Plus there are States with Private Registries and NCMEC doesn’t note anywhere on their map if their RSO count includes juveniles or private registries. Also NCMEC claims their Registered Sex Offender count does NOT include incarcerated Registered Sex Offenders, but when you compare their count for Virginia and the Virginia State Polices count they are very close which means NCMEC”s count for VA IS including incarcerated RSO’s.

So this Per Capita Chart is as good as the NCMEC data is.
