    Exclamation U.S. Murder Rate for 2018 Is on Track for a Big Drop

    U.S. Murder Rate for 2018 Is on Track for a Big Drop

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/06/u...-big-drop.html

    If murder falls about 4.5 percent nationally this year, the murder rate of about 5 per 100,000 will roughly be in line with 2009ís rate and half of what it was in 1980, the highest U.S. murder rate on record. The accompanying chart shows what the national murder rate since 1960 would look like with a 4.5 percent drop in 2018.

    Tracking the change in murder nationally is far easier than explaining why itís happening. There is still no consensus on why murder rose nationally in 2015 and 2016, though various theories have been proposed, including simple randomness. Similarly, a projected drop in murder in 2018 would not have an obvious cause. Employment of smarter technologies, expanded community intervention programs, and even colder weather could help explain year-to-year local changes.

    Must be because we have a lower ratio of immigrants to citizens when compared to last year.

    As to the bolded part, perhaps this is true for the victim disarming $#@!stains at the NY Times, but for the rest of us it's been quite obvious why murder rates (along with other violent crime rates) have been steadily falling for about 2 decades. As John Lott put it back in the 90s, More Guns, Less Crime.

    The drop in murder rates is because the Trump presidency has inspired everyone to be better people
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.
