United Arab Emirates - Homicide rate

Intentional homicides (per 100,000 people)

The value for Intentional homicides (per 100,000 people) in United Arab Emirates was 0.700 as of 2015. As the graph below shows, over the past 5 years this indicator reached a maximum value of 0.800 in 2012 and a minimum value of 0.600 in 2011.

Definition: Intentional homicides are estimates of unlawful 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.
