Indonesia Crime Stats

Background:

Like many chiefly Islamic Asian nations, crime is something that is taken extremely seriously in Indonesia, but officially the country has no major crime problems. With a total prisoner population of just 84,357, it has the 13th largest number of prisoners in the world. However, with such a large national population, its prisoner per capita rate is 145th largest of 164 nations, with just 38 per 100,000 of the population. And while the country retains the capital punishment, just one execution took place in 2007.

Definitions

  • Age of criminal responsibility: The age at which a person is no longer excluded from criminal liability.  The lowest age is indicated for countries where there isn’t a single age limit, for example where different states have different regulations (such as the USA) or there is different limits for boy and girls (such as in Iran). The spectrum is specifically wide for the USA and Mexico (both 6-12 years). Several US states do not stipulate any minimal age for criminal responsibility at all. For further qualifications, exceptions and other notes, please refer to notes.
