Macroanalysis of the social and economic factors most closely associated with homicide in different countries reveals that, overall, there is a strong link between a country’s homicide rate and its level of development. These two elements form part of a vicious circle, with a low level of development likely to push the homicide rate up, which in turn further hampers development. Nevertheless, some of the highest homicide rates recorded worldwide cannot be explained by the level of development alone. There are other factors beyond socioeconomic development that influence or are influenced by homicide rates.
