Crimes Committed and Crimes Reported

From Scotland comes a good example that "crimes reported" statistics are not always a good indicator of crimes committed.  David Gunn reports in The Scotsman, "The number of men reporting abuse by a woman has more than doubled in less than a decade, new figures revealed today."

Does that mean the highlands lasses are whacking the lads at double the rate of 2000?  More men being willing to come forward is the more likely explanation.
