Footnotes:

1) A separate offence is recorded for each victim of homicide, so that in an incident in which several people are killed, the number of homicides counted is the total number of people killed.
2) As at 1 November 2012; figures are subject to revision as cases are dealt with by the police and by the courts, or as further information becomes available.
3) GunPolicy.org conversion to rate of homicide victims per 100,000 population.
