There are several ways you can find this information but I'll show you one of them.

I began my search by using our research guide entitled Statistics. Within that guide, I clicked on the Statistics by Topic Area tab. Next I chose the topic of Crime, where I found a link to California Crime Data. On that Web site, I clicked on the Latest Report entitled Crime in California 2012. Once I opened that report, I simply searched it for the word indecent. I found six instances in the report with that word, one of which is a table of Adult Misdemeanor Arrests for indecent exposure. If you need a specific statistic, you could calculate the number of arrests for indecent exposure compared to total number of misdemeanor arrests in California in 2012.

Please be sure to let us know if you need any more help on this topic.
