Visualizing the Homicide Crisis in Mexico

Chart showing that the monthly homicide rate is growing in Mexico.

La Data, a website that uses data to tell stories, has created several data visualizations illustrating the homicide crisis in Mexico. The visualizations show that the monthly homicide rate in Mexico more than doubled from February 2015 to July 2018 to a historic high of 2.5 homicides per 100,000 inhabitants. The visualizations also show that the violence has extended to several Mexican states that use to have low homicides rates, such as Colima. The state’s monthly homicide rate has risen from 1.3 homicide cases per 100,000 inhabitants in July 2007 to 10.4 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in October of 2018.
