Tijuana is in the Top 3 most violent cities in the world
#1
TIJUANA, Baja California - Tijuana and Acapulco are battling for second place for the most violent cities in the world, based on the number of homicides, according to the international ranking by the Citizens Council on Public Safety and Criminal Justice.

While in 2016 Tijuana was in 22nd place with 53 murders for each 100,000 inhabitants, in 2017 the rate rose to 106 homicides per 100,000.

Meanwhile Caracas, Venezuela held first place in 2016 with 130 homicides per 100,000 inhabitants.

That chart makes no sense.. it's comparing cities around North America but BCS isn't a city, an entire state covering hundreds of square miles of land.   Throw in almost any state in America and it'll be #1 on the list.

No, if you throw in the entire state, the figures will be lower as the high homicides occur in urban areas. Tossing in suburban and rural areas increases the population (the denominator) without greatly increasing the number of murders (the numerator). This produces a lower homicide rate.

By way of example, the homicide rate in Oakland, CA is 19.5 per 100,000, whereas the homicide rate for the entire state of California is only 4.9 per 100,000. Which begs the question, why would I even have to explain this to you? It is a common math logical truth that the rate in the entire population cannot be greater than the rate in a sub-set of the population. It just cannot be.

By using the entire state of Baja California Sur, I thereby produced the LOWEST POSSIBLE HOMICIDE RATE.
