'Hundreds' of Rapes 'Hidden' by Danish Police

It sounds like the problem is that some were rape and not rape-rape, as Whoopi Goldberg so aptly put it befoe.

  Denmark recorded an average of 395 rape cases every year up to 2014. But an investigation by the Ministry of Justice has revealed the actual number to be closer to 1,100 annually, Metroxpress reported on Thursday.
The majority of the ‘missing’ reports were hidden in police statistics by giving them investigation numbers that did not classify them as rape cases. A number of police departments confirmed to Metroxpress that this was standard practice in cases where there was doubt as to whether a rape had actually occurred.
Can't they all just be grouped under sexual assault/by degree?
