Yes, I realize it's already late 2011... but it takes time for the previous year's statistics to be compiled and released by the FBI.



All of the numbers are updated for 2010, with the exception of Cuba's number, which is based on a report for the year 2008.

Living in Michigan our neighbors, Canada and Wisconsin have low murder rates. Ours is more than twice that of Canada and Wisconsin. If you take out our one rotten city Detroit, our state would match that of Canada and Wisconsin. I find that sad that one filthy city can drag down a whole state. SHAME on Detroit!

The actual numbers are not that high (St Thomas is the most populated and it only has 50K people) but wow, that percentage is still something- even though it amounts to only 30 murders a year.

I guess it comes down to what scares you most. A Greater statistical chance of being killed, or greater numbers of people being killed.

what is up with Vermont and New Hampshire? doesn't anyone have fun over there???

I think Louisiana is heavily skewed by Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The entire rest of the state has relatively low murder rates.

Not surprised, Baltimore (Murdermore/Bloodimore, or whatever some like to called it) and prince georges county are Maryland's Murder capitols. It's a Shame, without those 2 Marylands murder rate probably would not be that high.

Would have expected California's rate to be higher, also surprised Arizona is so high.(It's just higher then I thought it would be)

Seems like I should move northwest instead of south like I've been planning to do.
