Seems an awfully high figure

"There are about 600,000 registered sex offenders in the United States."

Given a population of around 300m that makes it just 0.2%. I would imagine the vast majority are male. That makes 0.4%. That's huge!

If these figures are correct or in the right ball park, that makes it 1 in 250 men in the US is a registered sex offender.

Is the UK any different...?
