Mapping Murder

by Joshua New
Homicide Monitor

The Ingarapé Institute, a Brazilian think tank studying security and development issues, has published the Homicide Monitor, an interactive map that visualizes changing murder rates in countries around the world using publicly available homicide data dating back to 2000. The Homicide Monitor breaks down country-level data by victim gender, the weapon used, and the evolution of the homicide rate, and make each country’s data available for download. The Ingarapé Institute created the Homicide Monitor to educate policymakers and journalists on how deadly violence is distributed around the globe, as people in certain countries and population groups face significantly higher risks of violent death than others, to help design more effective violence reduction policies.
