Top 50 Most Criminal Countries in the World



A crime rate is a measure of the number of crimes committed in a given area over a specific period of time.

It is usually expressed as the number of crimes per 1,000 people per year. For example, if a city has a population of 100,000 people and 1,000 crimes are committed in that city in a year, the crime rate would be 10 per 1,000 people.

Crimes are classified based on severity, such as violent crimes (murder, assault, robbery), property crimes (burglary, theft, vandalism), and white-collar crimes (fraud, embezzlement).
