Homicide in world cities

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This page contains A-Z tables of the incidence of intentional homicide in multi-municipal metropolitan areas and standalone municipalities with a predominantly urbanized population. It does not take into consideration capricious political divisions widely used in the media to represent a city, such as city proper or suburban municipalities. The urban population for each entry is required to be at least 50,000.

Some cities are considered to be larger than the official metropolitan area or municipality determined by that country's respective government. The widest sourced boundaries for each city are used, this includes the crossing of international borders.
