The INEGI finally released homicide data at the municipality level, analyzing it by state turned out very similar results to the preliminary data released back in August, so I won't repeat the state level charts I did back then, instead I will focus on the trends in violence at the metro area or big municipality level since both Tijuana and Ciudad Juárez had big declines in homicides —though they are still very violent— and Monterrey, Acapulco and Veracruz saw big increases.
Before the drug war the metro area of Toluca was by far the most violent city in Mexico for females and not Ciudad Juarez as commonly believed, in fact, when cities are ranked by their age-adjusted homicide rates from 1990 to 2006 (right before the drug war started) Juárez was not much more violent than Mexico City (Valle de México in the chart).
This is my food &(data) fishing blog. It’s mainly about data analysis, programming and statistics, with the occasional interspersed post about food. Oh, and lately it's been all about analyzing the drug war in Mexico.
