Well the 900 murders per year for Mexico City is fairly accurate, but that's for the actual city itself of 8.7 million people. This gives a rate of around 10.13 per 100,000. It's widely assumed though that the actual number is higher than that due to police corruption and misleading statistics. The city has the second highest number of kidnappings in the world, and has recently been the scene of resident protests over the increasing homicide and crime rate. The murder rate of Mexico City is actually very very low compared to the actual levels of other crime in the city compared to what you would see in most other countries/cities. It's estimated that of the 2,000-3,000 crimes commited in Mexico City every day, only around 600 are reported to authorities.

I just give up. There's no data that might break old clichés. We still have the cliché (coming from the 80's) that Mexico City is the most pollutioned city on earth.

I don't want to mean that MC is safest city of the world, we're far from that. I just wanted to show that MC is still unsafe, but not that much as it used to be.

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"

That cannot be right. I t says in the homicide column that there were 7 offences in 2005/2006. How is that 10.8 per 100,000 in the population when there wasn't even 10.8 offences in the total 3.7 million of the poulation. Doesn't make sense.

Melbourne's crime is definately not that high, in fact quite low compared to other Australian cities.

I there were seven offences in a year in melbourne with 3.7 million people it would be about 0.2 per 100,000.

Yeah, the math does't look right to me. 10.8 is American southern city level of murder.

That 82 murders is just for Nashville-Davidson right?..not the entire Nashville metro area..that would be 82 murders for a population of about 575,000 people for Nashville-Davidson..Nashville's metro area covers ..what 13 counties????

*edit* yes it was 82 muirders for Davidson county(Nashville) which would be 82 murders for a city of 575,000, not 1.7 million.

I've found out the reason for this discrepancy: The LGA Melbourne is just the core of the urban area which we like to call "Melbourne". This LGA had just around 62.000 inhabitants in 2004 (maybe close to 70.000 in 2005). Source . To find out the murder rates and actually the population of what we call Melbourne, one has to combine the data of every suburb of Melbourne.

One of Canada's most violent cities in 2006 was Shedden, Ontario. Its murder rate was an astonishing 980.4 murders per 100,000 residents that year. No; that's not a mistake. Shedden has a population of 816, and it logged 8 homicides in 2006.

Zürich is quite low in murder rates: 49 in 2005, 50 in 2006. Much much higher is the suicide rate

MILANO

Milano

population (as of December 31, 2004): 1.308.311

murders in 2005: 41

murder rate: 3.1

It's not bad at all but I think we could do better considering the European standards.

hmm... NYC has the most blacks and latinos (maybe LA has more) than any other city (population od 500,000 or more) in the USA yet the crime is relative lower compare to other cities. Especially the closest, Philadelphia. Something must be right. Maybe it is because employment tends to be much healthier in NYC? So maybe that is a big reason you know that the crime is lower. Lack of employment (crime goes up) and so is not necessary about race. Most poor people in the cities tend to be black or hispanics not whites.
