“Research by the PNG Institute of Medical Research found that over half the women interviewed had experienced sexual violence, whether by their husbands or by other men” (27). This lifetime rape rate can be converted to a yearly estimated rape rate of over 508.99 per 100,000 total population. This conversion was made with a formula commonly used in epidemiology to convert a cumulative rate into a rate for a specific time (in our case 1 year). It is important to note that this estimate excludes any male rape victims (TPJ - CODER COMMENT).
