Data collection and visualisation of worldwide homicide rates
The charts allow to visualise the long-term trend of homicides for countries around the world. Time coverage varies between countries – for some countries data is available going back to 1800 while for other countries data for only 1 or 2 years are available.
European homicide rates, for example, have dramatically decreased over the last millennium and have remained steadily low over the past 50 years. Italy has historically had higher homicide rates than other European countries, but today those rates have reached Northern European levels.
