Homicides: Count (number per annum) of homicides by all methods
HomRate: Annual rate of homicide (all methods) per 100,000 population
Gun%: Percentage of all homicides committed with a firearm
GunHom: Count (number per annum) of homicides committed with a firearm

[*Editor's Note: As this edition of the Global Study on Homicide does not provide the number of gun deaths, GunPolicy.org calculates the annual number of homicides committed with a firearm as follows: Homicides x Gun% = GunHom.]
