  • Illicit drugs: Crime statistics are often better indicators of prevalence of law enforcement and willingness to report crime, than actual prevalence.
  • Murder rate: Homicide rate per year per 100,000 inhabitants in various countries.
  • Murders > WHO: Intentional homicide rate is the estimate of intentional homicides in a country as a result of domestic disputes that end in a killing, interpersonal violence, violent conflicts over land resources, inter-gang violence over turf or control, and predatory violence and killing by armed groups. The term, intentional homicide, is broad, but it does not include all intentional killing. In particular, deaths arising from armed conflict are usually considered separately. The difference is usually described by the organisation of the killing. Individuals or small groups usually commit homicide, whereas the killing in armed conflict is usually committed by more or less cohesive groups of up to several hundred members. Two main sources of data are presented: criminal justice (law enforcement) measures (this series), supplemented by data from national statistical agencies, and measures from public health sources (see other intentional homicide series). These various sources measure slightly different phenomena and are therefore unlikely to provide identical numbers."

I agree with Jeff. I have been living here all my life, I am 50 y-0 . The statistics are not accurate even if you can find them. I franky doubt there is a responsible entity in this country for these data. Eventhough you can find very beautiful and very warm and loving people here, the lack of a strong system and effective controls makes the country a paradise for robbers rapers and kidnappers. International loans and other humanitarian help from organizations MUST require that goverment control crime and not poverty. Poverty reduction is USED by politician to become rich. You industrialized nations should require crime control first before lending. Ask Rudolph Giulianni, he knows about this better.
