What we know about child sex offenders in Australia

A survey of 2,000 Australian men found nearly 10% of respondents admitted to having sexual interactions with an under 18-year-old. The UNSW survey was the first nationally representative Australian study on child sexual abuse perpetration and the largest of its kind globally. In today’s deep dive, we speak with the lead investigator of the study, Dr Michael Salter, about who is committing these offences, and why the answer might surprise you.
