Same for Houston. I tried to look it up but it looks like the December numbers are not ready yet. But I can tell you that they will be high and most will be concentrated on the Southwest and Southeast part of town.

1. City of Cincinnati, 74 murders
Estimated city population, 330,000
Murder rate: 22.42/100,000 residents

2. Louisville, 79 murders throughout Jefferson County (Metro Louisville Gov't jurisdiction), 65 of which were in old city limits/new urban service area of Louisville

Estimated Metro Louisville population: 710,000
Murder rate: 11.13/100,000 residents

Estimated urban service area population (the real Louisville): 235,000
Murder rate: 27.66/100,000 residents

3. Lexington:
16 murders in Fayette County (Metro Lexington gov't jurisdiction), I believe 14 of which were in Lexington's urban service area

Metro Lexington/Fayette County population estimate: 278,000
Murder rate: 5.76/100,000 residents

Lexington urban service area population estimate (the real Lexington): 265,000
Murder rate: 5.28/100,000 residents

Clearly, Lexington is the safest city on here. In real terms, regardless of what the Louisville lovers say, it really IS a dangerous city. Heck, I feel safer in the worst parts of the Cincinnati than in many of the areas around UofL, much less Louisville's west end.

Pittsburgh had 71 although a local paper is reporting 73.
Last year we had 57.
23/100,000 is the same murder rate as Philly.
Allegheny County had 120. 125 is the record set in 2003.

6.3/100,000 for NYC. It's one of the safest cities in the country.

Phoenix had around 200.

Tucson had 74. The highest number in the city's history.

I'm not sure about Tokyo, but the entire nation of Japan recorded 1,134 murders in 2007. So, for a population of 127.4 million, that's a rate of 0.89 per 100,000.
