The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) supply regularly updated data on crime and criminal justice through the annual United Nations Survey on Crime Trends and Operations of Criminal Justice Systems.

The Homicide Rates shown are based on the most recent data (in April 2019), which are 2016 data when they exist, and otherwise 2015 data.

Homicide Rates are intentional homicide victims per 100,000 population. Intentional homicide means unlawful death inflicted upon a person with the intent to cause death or serious injury.
