Last comparison of crime rates between nations – ever!

Offences related to the number of inhabitants, year

2001–Offences per 100,000 inhabitants

Source: www.interpol.com

Notice, all English files on Danmark : https://danmark.wordpress.com/category/english-oder-deutsches-version/

Information of Denmark published these comparisons in 2003

Danish version of this file: http://www.lilliput-information.com/economics/intkrim.html

No such thing will ever be avaible again

And that’s why other media missused this site too

It is obvious that ”Homicides/Murder” and “Theft, totally” happened about twice as often in Sweden than in USA. “Rape” happened about 10% more often in Sweden compared with USA. And “Offences, totally” happened more than three times as often than in USA.

When it comes to ”Homicides/murder” and ”Rape” there still is a difference when you compare Sweden and Albania. “Homicides/murder” happened most infrequent in Finland and England, but about six times as often in Sweden compared with that. “Theft totally” was about twice as frequent in Sweden, when you compare to the other Nordic countries, and also more frequently than in England. Narco-criminality in Norway is about three times as frequent, when you compare with the other Nordic countries. The long coastline play an important role. Here is no available registrations for USA.

Table notes: Where the table shows a dash there are either no available registrations or the division of categories cannot be compared with the figures in other countries. There are other sexual characterised offences, but the categories do not seem to harmonize from country to country.

Description: If ”Serious assault” has been defined identical in the single countries is difficult to say. For a few of the countries registrations from year 2002 have been published.

Look at Denmark, and you will find criminality is increasing generally:

Interpol’s table, last column assign room for figures of how many offences that were made by foreigners.None of the countries have any registrations here. As matters develop with naturalisations and a disordered account of population it is not becoming easier to divide the criminal offences between foreigners and the ordinary populations.To enlighten what is going on I have to tell that Finland has the most restrictive law of immigration, when you compare with the other Nordic countries.


A propos Sweden: ”It goes on very well for Sweden”, it is often said. But the need for the state to borrow increases from 27 (Amer.) billions sw.krones to 41 billions. That was the first forecast of the Bureau of State-Debt for 2004. The forecast is based on prosperity-business-cycles (compare the Keynes-theories that are just theories). The uncertainty is large for the future development, and the Bureau of State-Debt consider it likely that the state will need to borrow more, not less money. The Swedish State-Debt is rising and the amount is 1,517 billions or 1.517 (Amer.) trillions sw.kroner (about $190 billions) now. The tax-revenue is decreasing substantial at the same time. Sweden had in average 8,909,128 inhabitants in 2001.What concerns Denmark is not entirely different, even though you hear something else.Denmark had 5,349,212 inhabitants in 2001.

Some supplements on especially New York and Washington in 2004:

  1. Crime in New York City vs. Other U.S. Cities, What’s up with Sweden!?

    Searching for a job, and being international relations major, I have not excluded the possibility of moving to New York City in the not-so-distant future. I’ve received some comments about New York City crime, which has led me to do…

  8. I moved to NYC after growing up in Canada and was shocked. In Canada, we are taught that violent crime is commonplace in the US and rare in our own country (not unlike what Europeans are led to believe); but I found that NY to be far safer and less criminal that Toronto. You can cite all the statistics you want, but I will always believe what my own experience taught me.

  9. What a lot of crap. There were 187 murders / homicides in Sweden in 2001. That makes it 2 per 100,000.

  10. Jerry, I hope you will incalculate homicides. I would not rely on even official Swedish statistics. I refer directly to Interpol-data.

  11. If I don’t remember wrong, New York began to give more punishment for assault not many years ago.

  17. Interpol made a mistake and overestimated Sweden’s murder statistics by a factor of over five. The economist got nailed as well and had to issue a correction. See below..Not sure whether the mistake also effected other statistics (rape rates) but this certainly suggests that caution is warranted before jumping to conclusions about the crime rates in Sweden.

    Correction: Sweden’s murder rate
    Oct 23rd 2003
    From The Economist print edition

    Due to an inaccuracy (now corrected) in Interpol’s database, our comparative chart in an article on South African crime on October 11th exaggerated Sweden’s murder rate by a factor of more than five. Our apologies, especially to law-abiding Swedes.

    Kommentar af Adan Felton — 19. januar 2008 @ 04:34

  18. Please be so kind to hand over the url showing the corrected database concerning Sweden on Interpol’s site

    I have read http://www.economist.com/world/africa/displaystory.cfm?story_id=2131478 and this has not the slitest to do with the information in my file that refers to quite another source. I never pointed at economist.com as a source.
    So you are 3000 off.

  22. So is the Sweden’ s crime rate a mistake or not ?

    Anybody can confirm and give maybe a link to the source?

    Those statistics are weird to me.

    Thank you in advance.

    This was misunderstood – deliberately of course. We a not supposed to know truth of what is going on concerning crimes in Sweden!

    You can just compare meaningfully what is comparable. Therefore we chose Homicide/murder, rape and the Theft (total number) that by definition is the same in Sweden and in USA.

    And we concluded that homicide/murder happens almost twice as often in Sweden 10.01 (US: 5.61) – taking the amount of population into consideration). And also Theft, more than the double in Sweden.

    It is not possible to go the Interpol-sources any longer due the fact that Interpol has closed down their international comparisons.

    Something became too obvious.
