Yep that is fair to say I think. In crime statistics I believe the homicide rate in the united states is around 5.1 per 100,000, so the murder rate in Los Angeles City/County is about 1-2 per 100,000 higher than the national average. And like most places it has its good and bad areas, and homicides tend to be clustered together in specific areas/neighborhoods. looking at 2015, countywide it looks like 2016 was a slight tick up from the year before, about 11 more homicides than 2015 (nothing like Chicago's jump though, that is a truly humongous and tragic jump in the rate, and I think there are other folks who could explain that far better than me.)

Copenhagen:

Quite a violent year as the gang war over territory is still ongoing here, on top of that several tragic cases.
It became personal for me when police officer I used to train self-defense with was killed by a mentally ill who shot him as he arrived at work

Copenhagen City ( pop: 1.280.371 ) total: 9 = 0,7 per 100.000
Copenhagen Metro ( pop: 2.027.628 ) total: 15 = 0,7 per 100.000

The murders:
4 month old killed by mother who took her baby with her when jumping to her death from a hospital

51yo Somali immigrant stabbed to death by somali roommate ( drunken dispute )

47yo man died 4 days after a drunken physcial dispute with his 44yo girlfriend

1yo boy killed by father ( who killed himself afterwards ) - family dispute

23yo immigrant gang member shot by 25yo immigrant gang member

29yo gang member shot

27yo Eritrian woman killed by 29yo Eritrian boyfriend who committed suicide afterwards

25yo Bosnian shot by SWAT team after he shot ( wounded ) 2 cops doing a drug search

25yo gang member stabbed and beaten to death

21yo gang member shot

47yo Somali Asylum seeker stabbed to death by 34yo Iraqi in an asylum seeker camp

30yo gang member shot

32yo women stabbed to death

43yo police officer shot to death by mentally ill 23y man
( I knew him and had trained self-defense with him - he left a wife and 2 kids )

32yo lady chocked to death by 35yo boyfriend

Well if you step back and look statistically, a rate of 7.3 means you have a 0.0073% chance of being murdered each year.

At least it truly is a very small chance.

Here's the 2016 count for the big three SF Bay Area cities:

Oakland (pop. 419,000): 87 - 20.8/100,000
San Francisco (pop. 864,816): 59 - 6.8/100,000
San Jose (pop. 1,026,908): 47 - 4.6/100,000

There were at least 124 more murders throughout the rest of the Bay Area, probably 130-140 in all (it's hard to find all the stats). So the Bay Area (pop. 7.7 million) in total had around 320 to 330 murders in 2016, and a rate of around 4 murders per 100,000 residents. That number rises close to 400 murders and a rate of 4.5 if you look at the entire CSA (pop. 8.7 million), which includes San Joaquin county and the city of Stockton (Stockton had 49 murders, and a population of 283,592, for a murder rate of 17.3/100,000).

And here are the murder totals for SF, SJ, and Oakland, going back to the year 2000, with rates listed for the highs and lows (rounded off, as populations are always changing and stats are not available for every year):

San Francisco:
2015 - 52
2014 - 45 (5/100,000)

2010 - 50
2009 - 47
2008 - 99
2007 - 100 (14/100,000)
2006 - 86
2005 - 96
2004 - 88
2003 - 70
2002 - 68
2001 - 64
2000 - 59

Oakland:
2015 - 95
2014 - 86
2013 - 92
2012 - 127
2011 - 104
2010 - 90
2009 - 104
2008 - 115
2007 - 120

2005 - 93
2004 - 83
2003 - 109
2002 - 108
2001 - 84
2000 - 80 (20/100,000)

San Jose:

2014 - 32
2013 - 44
2012 - 46 (5/100,000)
2011 - 42

What would the % chance be depending on your location in the city? Say a less affluent part of town.

You have a 1/12000 chance of being struck by lightning which is 0.008% which is a higher possibility of winning the lottery or being in a plane crash.

I suppose murders are avoidable whereas being struck by lightning is more just bad luck

In the absolute worst part of the city would be Englewood or so where 0.01% of the population in that area was murdered last year, which i'm assuming must be right there at the top of the worst areas of the country. In the nicest areas of town it's essentially 0%.

Nationally it's around 0.005% of the country is murdered per year, although that's extremely concentrated in areas where the murder rate gets as high as 0.01% in select areas like Englewood.

What is the murder rate in your city?

18 murders in Seattle in 2016, down from 24 in 2015.

https://www.seattle.gov/seattle-poli...rime-dashboard

City population was estimated to be 684,451 in 2015, so the murder rate is ~2.63/100K but population is growing so it's likely lower than that.

The city doesn't have a major violent crime problem but it's not 100% safe...over 4000 cars stolen last year for example...

That's a lot of stolen cars! Are they doing anything special to try to combat this?

Anyways, Toronto, with over 2.7 million people (about the same population as Chicago) has 14 murders this year, down from 26 murders the same time last year.
