List of countries by firearm-related death rate

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Homicide rates (from firearms) per 100,000 people by country.[1]

This is a historical list of countries by firearm-related death rate per 100,000 population in the listed year.

Homicide figures may include justifiable homicides along with criminal homicides, depending upon jurisdiction and reporting standards. Not included are suicides, accidental deaths, or justifiable deaths by any means other than by firearm.

Based upon various metrics alongside calculations over the course of multiple years, Singapore has the lowest firearm-related death rate in the world, and El Salvador used to have the highest, until very recently.[2][3]
