    Countries for which there is no adequate or comparable data are listed at the bottom of the table.

    Because of differences in the legal definition of offences, data are not strictly comparable across countries.

    Data refer to a year from 2000 to 2004, and reported in 2007, but in some cases from a different year if otherwise not available. In some cases the intentional homicide rate differs from the standard defi nition or refers to only part of a country.

    Intentional homicide data from ICPS - International Center for Policy Studies.

NOTE: The table on this page is re-published from data provided by the United Nations Development Program. No claims are made regarding the accuracy of murder rate-homicide information contained here. All suggestions for corrections of any errors about national murder rate index should be addressed to the UNDP.
