Homicide Incidents

The rate at which homicide occurs in Australia remains at an historical low.

In 2007–08, there were an estimated 1.2 homicide incidents [all methods] per 100,000 Australians, which is equal to the previous year, but around 35 percent lower than was estimated in the first few years of NHMP's [National Homicide Monitoring Program's] implementation.

The highest recorded homicide incident rate was 1.9 per 100,000 in both 1992–93 and 1990–91.
