Homicide rates per 100,000 inhabitants are down to 7.5 cases.


This graph shows that there has been a steady decline in that statistic since 2009 which theoretically says Panama continues to become safer, particularly in comparison with our neighbours in Central America.


* Have to wonder about the accuracy of the reporting by Nicaragua.
