    Countries for which there is no adequate or comparable data are listed at the bottom of the table.

    Because of differences in legal definitions, data are not strictly comparable across countries.

    Data refer to a year 2007, but in some cases to a different year if otherwise not available. In some cases the intentional homicide rate differs from the standard definition or refers to only part of a country.

    Data from ICPS - International Center for Policy Studies.
