I wonder how much this is due to directives to under report. I have had issues where the police refuse to report, and I've heard of many others doing that as well.

I'd hate to disregard the numbers just because they don't match with my own assumed narrative. Considering this is looking at data from 1990 I'm sure there was plenty of impetus in the 90's to marginalize and ignore whole communities, so I don't know if we can assume that that is a new trend by any means.
