Laguna Beach CNN  — 

Uber released a report Monday that outlines how it will categorize sexual misconduct, sexual assault and rape claims involving its drivers and passengers, which the company says is a first step toward getting out its promised safety transparency report putting numbers to sexual assaults and other incidents that occur on its platform.

Uber’s pledge to release that report came on the heels of CNN’s investigation that found that at least 103 Uber drivers in the United States had been accused of sexually assaulting or abusing their passengers in the previous four years. The drivers were arrested, wanted by police, or had been named in civil suits related to the incidents. It was the first time that any numbers had been put to the issue.

An Uber spokesperson told CNN Business the company hasn’t yet determined what data will be released in the report, but it confirmed it will include “more serious incidents,” including sexual assault and fatal car accidents.

The 53-page taxonomy report was authored by staff at the National Sexual Violence Resource Center and the Urban Institute. Uber partnered with the organizations, which work with sexual violence survivors, because of their experience with data collection around the issue. It defines 21 categories of complaints ranging from staring or leering to masturbation to non-consensual sexual penetration.

The company said it plans to release the report in 2019.
