    15,000 in population of 5 million is worse then 15,000 in population of 400 million. We need this as percentage of population. In which I think Venezuela wins. You also need to decide are you including civil war murders terrorist incidents or only Murder and manslaughter.

    Bullwank. As others have said, needs to be per capita. If I have a choice between visiting

    1. India with 43000 murders per year and a population of 1.2 billion, or
    2. The town of Psychomurderville, with 42000 murders per year and a population of 42001,

    Which of those places is deadlier?

    Wouldn`t murders per capita be a better way to calculate this?

    Also, a simple list of the numbers would have been just as interesting but not make me wait 2 minutes to get all the info.

    I thought it was a nice list but all it does is list number of murders per year. What about population? Totally ignored here.

    But Kitteh couldn`t link to a murder top ten which doesn`t have the USA on it, or one that has Venezuela on it.

    That is very disturbing regardless of population ratio. These many humans loose ther life to violence every year.
    & there are not that many guns or a drug trafficking or political murders in India.

    Crakr kinda beat me to it, but India is not a deadly place. They have over 1 billion people in that country. 40k is not a huge number.

    ^This was "stupid beyond all reason".
    #1 it`s not "per capita" which makes it meaningless.
    #2 it fails to account for other forms of death aside from "murder" which is HIGHLY subjective!
    Example: Man slits his daughter`s throat for walking around without a veil?
    NOT murder: in certain countries at least.

    @Angelmassb: I think it`s from "Vogue" magazine, but I could be mistaken... :-P
