INTENTIONAL HOMICIDES BY COUNTRY

At the top of the page we can see the map of homicides in the world. It represents the rate of intentional homicides per 100,000 inhabitants in each of the countries, which allows a comparison between the different countries.

A homicide is intentional if a person causes the death of another with the intention of cause death or a seriously injuring for the victim. We can also speak of intentional homicide when the perpetrator does an action knowing that it can cause the death of people, such as by setting a fire or planting a bomb.

In the table that we can see after, we can compare the number of homicides, female and male homicides, homicides of women and men by relatives and the homicide rate per country.
