The article begins by reviewing up-to-date research suggesting that the rate of false reporting for sexual assault is in the range of 2-8%.  It also critiques prior research suggesting that the rate of false reporting is far higher, and explores the reasons why this issue is so challenging for professionals in the field.  Questions addressed in the article include the following:

*    How many sexual assault reports are false?
*    What is the actual definition of a false report?
*    But what if part of the report is false?

The article then concludes with a discussion of how professionals can work to overcome these challenges, and how to handle the frustrating reality of "real" false reports.
