Crime Rate by Country

A country’s overall crime rate is determined by the number of reported crimes and dividing it by the total population. That number is then multiplied by 100,000 to provide a number of crimes per 100,000 people; it is important to view these rates per capita because larger countries usually have more instances of crime just because of the number of citizens that live within them. The general crime rate is differentiated from the violent crime rate because the overall crime rate looks at all crimes, not just those that involve the use or threat of violence.

Crime rates can vary greatly between countries, as rates are influenced by many factors, such as poverty, the availability of guns, employment opportunities, for example. However, there is a correlation between age and crime, where younger people commit more crimes. Another factor that influences the amount of crime a country experiences is their approach to policing and law enforcement, as effective law enforcement can assist in usually lower crime rates.
