The country is very moderate on drugs, legalization lowered the amount of users. It's typically the opposite of what foreigners expect.

I have found the official stats of 2005 for the state Victoria: murder rate was 4.4 per 100.000

And here you can find the stats for every single LGA for 2005/2006. There the murder rate for Melbourne is stated with 10.8 per 100.000 inhabitants.

The keywords I used for the google-search: "crime statistic melbourne"

In 1993 Bogotá was the scene of 4,352 homicides, or 80 killings per 100,000 inhabitants. This year the figure is 18 per 100,000 - a 75% drop and less than half that of Rio de Janeiro, which has a murder rate of around 42 per 100,000 inhabitants. There were 858 homicides in 2005-06 in England, Scotland and Wales.

Don't be a fool. Rio and Mexico City are unsafer than Bogotá. Also Caracas Venezuela, these days.

As far as I know, crime rates have tremendously decreased after 2000 in Colombia. Kidnappings are probably less than a third than a few years ago. There are many more chances of being kidnapped these days in Buenos Aires or Mexico City.... (year 2006 not 1990's anymore).

Copenhagen had 12 murders in 2006 ( pop 1.8 mil )

The entire nation 29 in 2006 ( pop 5.4mil )

The lowest number in 22 years btw

http://www.dr.dk/Nyheder/Indland/kri.../20/174159.htm ( in Danish )


That's 0.4 per 100.000

579 in NYC in 2006. Up from 539 homicides in 2005. The 2005 figure was the city's lowest death toll in more than 40 years. I guess homicides are going up again.

Also here are other cities. Philadelphia is not doing so well.

Could you read all the posts please.

I corrected the data because it's 2.5 per day. As I said that give us 912.5 murders per year, and with an estimated population of 20 million that results on a murder rate of 4.50 per 100,000.

And as as said, fortunately not the whole country suffers the terrible crime levels of the northern border with cities like Matamoros (near the Texan border) with a murder rate of 25.0 per 100,000. On the contrast, there are cities like Xalapa with a murder rate of 0.12 of 100,000.
