Fun with numbers

If the crimes are not reported, how can we say how many of them there are?

MP James Lunney is quoted (The News, Dec. 6) as saying, “People … are always throwing out outrageous numbers.” Then he goes on to say “fully 31 per cent of crimes are not reported.”

Hey, James! If they are not reporteda then how do you know how many there are?
