Baja Homicide Rate

FulanoForum  This is from Semaforo Delictivo (Crime traffic light)

This chart shows the homicide rates by Mexican state, compared to the national average in Mexico. The dark red is more than twice the national average. The bright red is above the national average, yellow is states between the national median and mean, and green is below the mean and median.

Keep in mind, that the national average homicide rate in Mexico is 30 per 100,000, which is seven times the national average of the United States. So where, for instance, the chart says Baja California is 65% ABOVE the national average, that makes it some 12 times higher than the United States.c
