DataGenius: Homicide worldwide

Bringing the data into life is one the most awesome work to do, to get some insightful information hidden between the neurons under the web of data.

The Homicide Rate Dataset contains country-level data on the total recorded intentional homicide rate (per million population) per year, from 1995 to 2008.

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), one of the most accredited sources for crime statistics at the global level, defines intentional homicide as “unlawful death purposefully inflicted on a person by another person.”


This shows the homicide rate in East Asia and Pacific region against the homicide rate in Africa.

This dashboard gives flexibility of drilling down to a particular country and year-wise seamlessly, hence the above screenshot shows the trend of rate of homicide in Australia against that of South Africa.
