We are in the last year of the decade, its almost surreal how fast the time has gone. 2018 numbers will not be validated and released by the FBI until the fall; the below numbers are decade-to-date annual averages, 2010-2017, provided by the FBI. I review all mid-sized cities and up (baseline 800,000 metro population and $40 billion economy)...

I think this will provide context to specific city rates, as murder rates can have dramatic swings yearly. Looking at the averages gives you context on where a city "normally" lies. This is also interesting because you can easily note how safe Canadian cities are in comparison...

2010-2017, per FBI

Here is a good question. Since we are in the 2000,s are we going refer to the new decades as the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s etc or will our kids just use those phrases. I feel saying we are now in the 2020s feels a little too long.

We left the 2000s when 2010 came around. We are in "The Tens". You haven't seen anyone abbreviate this as the '10s?

Just think back a decade ago (1/3/09), we were in a different era across virtually all platforms. This is a different decade and era. Decades bleed together when you cross from one into the other, but once you get about 2-3 years into the next decade, there is a cultural shift...

Looks like Atlanta is off to a bad start to 2019 already. This is not 1 but 2. Must be all the rain.

Seems like each decade is worse than the one before.


Except a few cities like Baltimore are having record breaking years in homicides.

I think Chicago recorded its first homicide of the year today - actually it was 1 shooting that killed 2 people, so the count is 2.

Really? Murders in the USA are around their lowest point in over 50 years!
