The company claims that all the incidents combined represent just 0.0002 percent of Uber's 1.3 billion rides in the U.S. previous year. Uber noted that the vast majority - 99.9% - of its rides had no reported safety issues.
In 2017, the company counted 2,936 reported sexual assaults - including 229 rapes - during 1 billion US trips.
Of these incidents, riders were accused as the perpetrator 45% of the time.
To be clear, these reported assaults happened to both riders and drivers.
With regard to fatal accidents, across 2017 and 2018, only about 40% of those killed were either drivers or riders using uber, the rest were third parties.
The next safety report will be published in two years' time.
The other four categories of sexual assault defined by Uber - including non-consensual kissing, non-consensual touching and attempted rape - did not detail whether the reporting parties were victims.
Ten murders occurred in 2017 and nine in 2018, the company said. Over the two-year period of the study, a sexual assault was reported on one in every 5 million trips. The company noted the rate of vehicle fatalities by miles traveled is less than half the rate of the U.S.as a whole.

Uber and competitor Lyft have faced a backlash for not doing enough to protect the safety of its riders and drivers. A company spokeswoman confirmed Thursday that it "remained committed" to releasing a report, but did not say when it would be released. In October, a House committee officially called on these companies to improve their safety measures over concerns about background check procedures on drivers and the way they handle reports of sexual assault and harassment.
He added: "In the long run, we will be a better company for taking this step today - because I firmly believe that companies who are open, accountable, and unafraid are ultimately the companies that succeed".
Whilst that sounds pretty harrowing at face value, 1.3 billion rides were taken in the US last year, which means that the number of unsafe incidents makes up just 0.0002 percent of total rides.
The companies have made it more hard for people to impersonate drivers, tightened controls to detect convicted criminals and added a button to report a problem while driving - steps that a lawyer for 34 women who have filed suit against Lyft views as insufficient. The company is working on a way to share the names of drivers it has deactivated from the platform with other ride-hailing companies to make sure they are aware of past incidents.
Uber's report stressed that such safety incidents were not common: "As the numbers in this report will show, safety incidents on our platform are, statistically, ".
"As experts in this field, we know first-hand that sexual harassment and abuse occur in all industries because they are a part of our larger society". Uber ultimately announced it would do away with a policy that previously forced individuals with sexual-assault complaints into arbitration and made them sign non-disclosure agreements.
"We believe transparency fosters accountability", Uber said a year ago when it pledged to release the report.
