Note on Compiling and comparing International Crime Statistics:
Statistics reported to the United Nations in the context of its various surveys on crime levels and criminal justice trends are incidents of victimization that have been reported to the authorities in any given country. That means that this data is subject to the problems of accuracy of all official crime data.
[*In category 2.4, some police respondents include attempted (uncompleted) homicides, i.e. alleged or prosecuted, non-fatal firearm assaults. In such cases the 'firearm homicide' figure can be overstated.]
