Colombia - Homicide rate

Intentional homicides, female (per 100,000 female)

The value for Intentional homicides, female (per 100,000 female) in Colombia was 4.30 as of 2017. As the graph below shows, over the past 27 years this indicator reached a maximum value of 11.90 in 1992 and a minimum value of 4.20 in 2016.

Definition: Intentional homicides, female are estimates of unlawful female homicides purposely inflicted as a result of domestic disputes, interpersonal violence, violent conflicts over land resources, intergang violence over turf or control, and predatory violence and killing by armed groups. Intentional homicide does not include all intentional killing; the difference is usually in the organization of the killing. Individuals or small groups usually commit homicide, whereas killing in armed conflict is usually committed by fairly cohesive groups of up to several hundred members and is thus usually excluded.
