Gun violence rose at an unprecedented rate in 2020, but evidence is accumulating that it is starting to fall.
Nice, layperson presentation. See mine at https://www.crimeinamerica.net/crime-rates-united-states/. Best, Len.
The "number of murders" chart is meaningless because population has grown steadily over time. Ignore it. The murder rate chart paints the only accurate picture. Please get rid of the first one, or at least put it below the more meaningful one.
Nice to see some rare crime trends coverage that is informative rather than cherry picked to serve the editors' politics. Do you have recommendations for other good criminology blogs or the like?
