I have read on Hacker News today that
The overall solution rate for murder in the US is about 65%. In big cities with dubious police leadership, the solution rate for murder can be under 50%.
(Chicago, Baltimore, St.Lou etc..., right?)
Where can one get the dataset for the States, and for other countries of the world, at any level of aggregation?
Yes, I do know about police misreporting, and forced confessions. Having both corrected and raw rates would be great.
The narrowest definition is finding the victim's body. Rate of unsolved disappearance cases would be a welcome, but not essential variable.
Similar questions here:
- Where can I find adult abduction victim statistics for the United States? (a somewhat different crime, unanswered)
- Obtaining data sets for solved murder (the question asks for a micro dataset, is unanswered, and I want a geographically aggregated one)
P.S. Use case - should be an excellent indicator of rule of law/lawlessness in an area.
