The Homicide Monitor is the most comprehensive publicly available dataset on murder in the world. It is a data-driven data visualization tool designed to show the distribution, dimensions and dynamics of homicidal violence in an interactive and accessible manner. Since homicidal violence is concentrated in Latin America and the Caribbean, the Monitor includes additional information at the national, state and city scale.
The Homicide Monitor was designed with a wide variety of users in mind. The goal is to show policy makers, journalists, scholars, and activists how lethal violence is distributed, whether spatially, temporally or demographically. Some countries and population groups are much more at risk of dying violently than others. A better diagnosis of how homicide is spread can help in the design of effective violence prevention and reduction measures.
