U.S. Counties and Murder

(See the column: Guns, Men, and Murder: The Data. See these tables also: Guns and Murder (by County) and Guns and Murder (by State).)

The table below is compiled from, among other sources, research released last year from the Crime Prevention Research Center. The 95 counties below are ranked by the number of murders that occurred in each county. These 95 counties represent only 3% of all U.S. counties, but nearly 60% of the total number of murders in the U.S.

The counties in blue are the top 101 counties (as ranked by City-Data) for the "lowest percentage of residents that keep firearms around their homes." The counties in red are the top 101 for the "highest percentage of residents that keep firearms around their homes." The counties with the skull-and-crossbones symbol () are in the list of the "30 major U.S. areas with the highest murder rates."
