Sex crimes spin?

In this Weekly article (see link below), Stanford Deputy Chris Cohendet is quoted as saying:
"It's not an increase in assaults but an increase in reports of them."
How exactly is he able to make this determination?
Sounds to me like this is one of those undeterminable questions since how would you know what wasn't reported in the past in order to compare to what is being reported now?
Sounds like PR spin to me in order to keep Stanford campus community from being concerned and Stanford's low-crime reputation
from being sullied.
