More than 29,000 homicide+feminicide victims in Mexico Jan-Oct 2019

The Executive Secretariat for the National System for Public Security (SESNSP) is a division of the Mexican Secretary of Gobernacion. Each month the SESNSP publishes statistics on the numbers of crimes and crime victims in the 32 states of Mexico. Those data are available online at this link:
New data generally comes online around the 20th of each month. The current data is for January – October 2019.  The numbers below include the total number of intentional homicide victims + the number of feminicide victims. The crime of feminicide is defined as the murder of a woman with a clear gender motive.
As I was looking at the data in the latest report, I noticed that the column for homicidios dolosos had been adjusted slightly in some of the past months, generally down, and the numbers of feminicides had increased slightly. I assume this is because as a crime is investigated, it may be reclassified.
These numbers indicate an average of 2,957 homicide victims each month; 97 victims each day.
In the Animal Politico article posted below, the figure of 32,565 includes homicide and feminicide victims from December 2018 (the first month of the AMLO sexenio – October 2019).
The thing about these numbers that stands out most to me is how little variation there is from month to month. The numbers are slightly higher than 2018, but very similar.

If these trends continue, close to 35,500 people will become murder victims in Mexico in 2019.

El número de personas asesinadas en lo que va del sexenio del presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador – de diciembre de 2018 a octubre de 2019 – ascendió a 32 mil 565 víctimas, entre homicidios y feminicidios. Ello equivale, en promedio, a por lo menos 97 personas asesinadas todos los días en México.

Se trata del arranque de sexenio con mayor número de homicidios de los últimos cuatro gobiernos federales. No obstante, los datos oficiales también evidencian que la cifra mensual de crímenes se ha estabilizado desde que arrancó el segundo semestre de este 2019, frenándose así la tendencia al alza registrada en la primera parte del año.

De acuerdo con la estadística actualizada del Secretariado Ejecutivo del Sistema Nacional de Seguridad Pública (SESNSP), en octubre de 2019 las procuradurías y fiscalías del país reportaron 2 mil 866 víctimas de homicidios dolosos y 67 víctimas de feminicidio. Es decir, un total de 2 mil 933 personas asesinadas y un promedio diario de 94.6 casos.

119 homicides in Juárez in October; at least 1,260 in 2019

The month of October ended with a total of 119 homicides in Ciudad Juarez, according to a report from the Fiscalia published in El Diario today. The newspaper also reports that 18 of the total victims in October were women (15 % of the total), and that 102 of the victims had some relationship with the activities of the local drug market, or, narcomenudeo, according to the report in El Diario.  Below is a table showing the homicides for each month of 2019. A total of 1,292 people have been victims of homicide in 2019, and 132 women victims, about 10 percent of the total number of homicides so far this year. This total for January – October 2019 exceeds the total homicides for 2018, reported as 1,259.
Based on the average number of people killed each month, it is likely that homicides this year in Juarez will exceed 1,500.  Based on an estimate of the total Juarez population of 1.4 million, the murder RATE in the city is now about 107 (murders per 100,000). Below are the figures I’ve kept for 2019.

I have also been following another civil society effort to track homicides in all major cities in Chihuahua. Their total for the city is 1,260. It is possible that the difference with my total is that sometimes media report numbers for all of the “northern zone” of Chihuahua, including Juarez and surrounding municipios; other media report just the numbers for the city. For that info, see:

Un total de 102 tienen relación con actividades de narcomenudeo, informó el fiscal Jorge Nava López

Ciudad Juárez.- De los 119 homicidios que ocurrieron en la ciudad durante el mes de octubre que concluyó ayer, un total de 102 tienen relación con actividades de narcomenudeo, informó el fiscal Jorge Nava López.

Durante el mes pasado 18 mujeres fueron asesinadas bajo distintas circunstancias pero cerca de 10 fueron por su relación con grupos dedicados a la venta de droga al menudeo.

En 87 homicidios se utilizaron armas de fuego, ocho personas fueron asesinadas con navajas o cuchillos, ocho más a golpes, tres decapitados, tres mediante la asfixia, un ‘entambado’, cinco envueltos en cobijas y uno en bolsas.

La cifra de personas asesinadas es inferior a los meses de abril cuando hubo 149 homicidios, el mes de junio y agosto con 130 y mayo el más alto con 151, informó Nava López.

Mexican Homicide data Jan-Sept 2019

The Mexican public security agency (SESNSP) released updated statistics on victims of crime on October 20. For details see: https://www.gob.mx/sesnsp/acciones-y-programas/victimas-nueva-metodologia?state=published
The SESNSP reports crime data from the Fiscalias (public prosecutors) from all of the Mexican states.
Here is a summary I’ve kept of these numbers as reported during 2019:

Screen Shot 2019-10-31 at 10.00.25.png

Including all of the homicide numbers for 2008-September 2019, the data looks like this.

Screen Shot 2019-10-31 at 10.03.04.png

The dip for 2019 is because there are only 9 months of data so far. The average number of homicide victims per month so far this year = 2,877. If this continues, the annual number of victims will be about 34,500, a small decrease over 2018. The daily average is about 95 people per day. I did not include the “feminicidio” number in this total as I believe it is a subset of the total homicides. The explanations of this number are unclear to me. Basically the 748 feminicidios counted so far in 2019 are murders where gender is determined to be the primary motive for the killing as this number is significantly smaller than the actual number of homicide victims who are women.
ANIMAL POLITICO looks at the homicide numbers since December 2018, including all 10 months of the administration of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO).
Here’s a general summary of some of the data reported from another source. I have not seen a report on this in the English language press. molly molloy

La sangrienta realidad de México: casi 100 homicidios por día durante 2019

De enero a septiembre de este año se han registrado 25,890 homicidios en el país, cifra récord desde 1997

20 de octubre de 2019

En lo que va de 2019 se han registrado 25,890 homicidios en México, según cifras actualizadas del Secretariado Ejecutivo del Sistema Nacional de Seguridad Pública (SESNSP). Las estadísticas, actualizadas este domingo, muestran que el presente año es el más violento en la historia del país del que se tenga registro, pues en promedio se cometen 95 asesinatos por día.

El aumento en la cifra de homicidios es 2.4% mayor que la reportada en el mismo periodo de 2018, cuando se reportaron 25,282. De mantenerse en los mismos niveles durante el último trimestre del año, éste cerraría con más de 34,500 víctimas, convirtiéndose oficialmente en el año más sangriento desde 1997, cuando comenzaron los registros.

A pesar de ello, en el último mes reportado, 2.825 personas fueron asesinadas, lo que significa que septiembre tuvo una baja del 4.79% respecto a agosto.

Los estados con las cifras más altas de asesinatos reportados en septiembre fueron Guanajuato con 285, Jalisco con 239, Baja California con 234, Michoacán con 220 y el Estado de México con 209 casos. Estos cinco estados concentran el 42.01% de los decesos que se registraron en este mes, es decir, que 4 de cada 10 homicidios ocurrieron en alguno de estos lugares.

En contraste, Yucatán con 4 casos, Campeche y Baja California Sur, ambos con 5, Aguascalientes con 11 y Durango con 12, son los estados que presentaron la menor incidencia de homicidios en el noveno mes del año.

Los homicidios dolosos registrados en septiembre mostraron una baja de 123 casos comparados con los 2,948 de agosto, lo que en conjunto significa el cuarto mes consecutivo a la baja desde el tope de 3,026 asesinatos alcanzado en el mes de junio.

En el comparativo anual, en el noveno mes de 2019 se registró una disminución de 142 casos, el 4.79% menos frente a los 2,967 que se reportaron en el mismo mes del 2018, indicó el Secretariado en su informe.

El número de asesinatos acumulados en los primeros nueve meses del año supone una media de 94,8 homicidios diarios en el país, de acuerdo con las cifras al 30 de septiembre pasado.

La incidencia delictiva de septiembre totalizó 166,832 delitos y fue inferior en 8,561 casos en comparación con las cifras del mes inmediato anterior, agosto, que fue de 175,393.

Salvo el feminicidio, que en septiembre subió un caso respecto a agosto (de 90 a 91), el resto de los delitos presentaron una baja general, desde las extorsiones, a los robos a casa habitación y violencia intrafamiliar.

La extorsión bajó 13.09 %, la violencia familiar cayó el 6.35 %, y el narcomenudeo se redujo en 8.9% durante septiembre comparando con agosto.

En el caso de los feminicidios, Veracruz reportó la cifra más alta, con una tasa de 3.21 denuncias por cada cien mil mujeres. Le siguió Morelos con 2.59, Sinaloa con 2.03, Nuevo León con 1.92 y Sonora con 1.83.

En cuanto al delito de secuestro, de enero a septiembre se reportaron más de 1,252 víctimas, mientras que en el delito de extorsión van 6,556.

El crimen de abuso sexual registró en el mismo un total de 1,936 carpetas de investigación, para dar un total de 17,509 en los primeros 9 meses del año.

En materia de robo van 560,98 delitos reportados en carpetas de investigación, de los cuales, el robo a transeúntes en vía pública acumula 59,965 carpetas y el robo en transporte público colectivo, 14,104.

El secretariado define a la incidencia delictiva como la presunta ocurrencia de delitos registrados en averiguaciones previas y carpetas de investigación iniciadas, reportadas por las Procuradurías Generales de Justicia y Fiscalías Generales de las 32 entidades del país.

El pasado mes de julio, el gobierno mexicano puso en operación a la Guardia Nacional, un cuerpo de seguridad formado por militares, oficiales navales y policías para combatir la inseguridad en el país.

Mexican homicide data January-August 2019 = 23,724 victims

Mexico’s Secretariat for Security & Citizen Protection of the Secretariado Ejecutivo del Sistema Nacional de Seguridad Pública (SESNSP) updated crime victims statistics on September 20, with data on a variety of crimes for January-August 2019.
The numbers continue to move steadily upward, with totals of nearly 3,000 victims of homicide each month so far this year. The table below includes just the numbers of “homicidios dolosos” (intentional homicides/murders) and “feminicidios,” defined as gender-related homicides. The total number of homicides reported for 8 months is 23,724 (including homicidios dolosos + feminicidios)–on average about 98 people each day are victims of homicide in Mexico.  If the trend continues at the same rate, the year will end with a death toll of more than 35,600 victims—this is about 1000 more victims according to the same dataset from 2018.
Screen Shot 2019-09-30 at 14.15.14
The only thing that really jumps out from these numbers is how depressingly similar the last few years have been in terms of the continual growth of homicidal violence in Mexico. It has been 10 months since AMLO took over as President, promising to improve security for the Mexican people, but the violence continues to increase. Also, at the high point of Calderon’s “drug war,” in 2011, there were about 27,200 homicides. After a decrease from 2012-2015, the trend turned around and started to climb. So far, it seems that the next high point remains in the future. Without considering the estimated 30,000-40,000 missing or disappeared, more than 301,000 Mexicans have been murdered since 2007.

At the links provided above you can review the data for each Mexican state. Using the murder rate (# of homicides per 100,000 people) the most violent states so far in 2019 are Colima with a rate of 56, followed by Baja California: 48, Chihuahua: 38, and Morelos and Guanajuato with murder rates of about 30.

Excerpt:

Con más de 3 mil homicidios en agosto, 2019 mantiene récord de violencia

Colima, Baja California y Chihuahua registran las tasas más altas de homicidio doloso, mientras que Veracruz lidera en feminicidios.
20 de septiembre, 2019

En agosto, un total de 3 mil 54 personas fueron asesinadas en México. Con ello asciende a más de 23 mil 700 la cifra de personas asesinadas este año, lo que mantiene a 2019 en un nivel récord de violencia homicida. Los estados de Colima, Baja California y Chihuahua registran las tasas más altas de homicidio en lo que va del año, mientras que Veracruz lidera en el caso específico de los feminicidios.

Los datos oficiales actualizados del Secretariado Ejecutivo del Sistema Nacional de Seguridad Pública (SESNSP) detallan que en agosto se registraron 2 mil 966 casos de homicidio doloso y 88 víctimas de feminicidio. Ello representa un promedio de entre 98 y 99 personas asesinadas todos los días.

INEGI data: 35,964 homicides in 2018…nearly 300,000 victims since 2007

The new cumulative data bulletin from Instituto Nacional de Estadistica e Geografia (INEGI) was released on July 25, 2019, covering 2009-2018, total homicide data from Mexico.  The full bulletin is online here:

Below is a table of summary data from 2007-present. The numbers for 2007-2018 are from INEGI; the figure for January-June 2019 is from the SESNSP:

Screen Shot 2019-07-30 at 19.07.58
The INEGI data is released each year at this time and I’ve saved and compiled it since about 2008.  The preliminary data on Mexican homicides is released each month from a different agency, the SESNSP which reports homicides from procuradoras or fiscalias (state prosecutors’ offices) in each Mexican state. The INEGI data is gathered and reported from medical legal investigators offices in all of the states, compiling data from death certificates listing homicide as cause of death. So the two data sources are not exactly comparable. The INEGI data is generally considered the most valid.
Since I started tracking this about 10 years ago, the INEGI data has usually been higher than the preliminary SESNSP figures. For example, the SESNSP reported a total of 33,523 homicides in Mexico in 2018; the new INEGI data reports 35,964 for the same period.  This new data shows that the increase in homicides from 2017-2018 was much higher than previously reported.
In addition to the raw numbers, the INEGI report shows the murder rate (# of homicides per 100,000 people) for the nation and for each state in Mexico.  Between 2017 and 2018, the murder rate jumped from 26 to 29. It is significant to note that in 2011–the most violent year of the so-called “war on drugs”–the murder rate in Mexico was 24.
Adding in the estimate of January-June 2019 homicides from the SESNSP, the official number of victims for the past 12.5 years is now approaching 300,000. On average from 2007-June 2019, more than 65 people have been murdered each day in Mexico.  During 2019, on average, 99 people per day were murdered in Mexico. This figure DOES NOT include any of the estimated 40,000 people reported missing and/or disappeared in Mexico. molly molloy

14,520 homicides in 2019; 17,500 in the first 6 months of AMLO’s sexenio

New statistics from the National Public Security system were released yesterday, including the numbers of homicide and feminicide victims January – May 2019 in Mexico.  Homicides increased in the month of May after a small decrease in April. So far this year, there have been about 14,500 intentional homicides; the number includes murders categorized as feminicides. This is an average of 96 murder victims each day in Mexico.

Screen Shot 2019-06-22 at 10.34.48.png
In the article below from Animal Politico, the number of homicides from December 2018 is included, in order to provide the total murders since the beginning of Lopez Obrador’s term in office = 17,498. An average of nearly 3,000 homicides each month.
As I’ve noted before, I am not certain that the number of feminicidios is in addition to the other homicidios dolosos or if it is included in the larger number. There is a special definition of feminicidio as a gender-specific crime. Animal Politico adds the feminicidios to the total.
The source for these numbers is the Secretariados Ejecutivo del Sistema Nacional de Seguridad Publica, an agency of the Secretaria de Gobernacion. You can access these data and other statistics here:
The documents include separate listings for each state and also include numbers of victims of other crimes.

10 women murdered each day; 92 total murder victims; January 2019 in Mexico: SESNSP data

An article in yesterday’s EL UNIVERSAL is headlined: Mataron a 10 mujeres al dia durante enero / 10 women killed each day in January    https://www.eluniversal.com.mx/estados/mataron-10-mujeres-al-dia-durante-enero
I checked the newest statistics from the Mexican SESNSP which include the number of homicide victims nationwide and by state for the month of January 2019. These are online here: 
 
The total number of victims of homicidio doloso (intentional homicide) for January was 2,853. This comes to an average of 92 victims per day. There were 304 female homicide victims, 10 per day, or 10.6 percent of the total homicide victims. 
 
The SESNSP statistics also record 75 victims of feminicidio. This is (I believe) a subset of the total of 304 female victims in which the prosecutors have determined that the woman was murdered because of her gender. The article in El Universal discusses the confusing nature of this way of classifying victims. The article quotes Maria de la Luz Estrada, coordinator of the National Citizens Observatory of Feminicide: “The authorities often designate many homicides as related to organized crime and those are simply not investigated…thus the numbers (of feminicides) tend to be lower.”
 
The numbers reported do indicate a slight increase in the percentage of homicide victims who are women, and an overall increase in the number of homicides nationwide in Mexico. 
 
According to the data for all of 2018 reported here:
there were 33,341 intentional homicides in Mexico during 2018, an average of 91 victims each day. 
The data in this document is not broken down by gender, however SESNSP reports that there were 861 feminicidios in 2018.

95 homicides in Juarez in February 2019; average of 3.4 per day

According to El Diario there were 95 homicides in Juarez during February 2019.  In January there were 108 homicides so the total now for the year is 203.  The article also provides a figure of more than 5,000 homicides statewide in Chihuahua dating from October 2016 when the administration of Governor Javier Corral began. The city of Juarez accounts for about HALF of the total homicides in the state of Chihuahua.

On average, 3.4 people have been murdered in Ciudad Juarez each day in 2019.  There were a total of 1,259 murders in Juarez during 2018, an average of 3.4 murder victims per day.
Also below, El Diario reported the first homicide of March which occurred at about 12:20 am on March 1, 2019.
It may be worth noting again in terms of the Trump rhetoric of chaos and violence at the border, that the cities on the US side of the border have low homicide rates.
El Paso recently reported 23 homicides during 2018, and an average of 16 murders per year during the past decade.
The city of McAllen in the Rio Grande Valley reported sharp decreases in violent crime in 2018. There were NO HOMICIDES in McAllen during the past year: https://www.themonitor.com/2019/01/18/crime-mcallen-dropped-significantly-2018/
The city announced on Friday that 2018 saw the lowest crime rate in 34 years, just as President Donald Trump has recently called the current state of the southwest border a national security crisis. There were no homicides in McAllen last year. There was the fewest number of robberies and aggravated assaults on record.

Ciudad Juárez— Un hombre fue asesinado a balazos en los primeros minutos de este día, en el fraccionamiento Eco 2000.

Pegado a la pared de una casa, con cinco heridas de bala en cabeza, pecho y brazo derecho, quedó la víctima.

El homicidio ocurrió a las 00:20 horas, en las calles Lince y Santiago Troncoso.

At least 144 people killed so far in 2019; six shot to death yesterday in Juarez

El Diario reports that 6 people were murdered in Juarez yesterday in the space of 4 hours in the afternoon and evening. The killings took place in different neighborhoods and the police have not reported any arrests of persons responsible.
Also below, yesterday, El Diario reported that there had been a total of 138 homicides in 2019.  There were 109 in January, so with the 6 people killed yesterday, the current homicide toll for February is about 35 victims in 11 days; a total of about 144 in 2019–an average of about 3.4 people per day.
In yesterday’s article, the spokesperson for the Fiscalia commented on the changing tactics of the killers (sicarios) over the 11 years of hyperviolence that began in 2008.  He said that in earlier years, the killers tended to drive large luxury vehicles and primarily used AK-47 rifles. Now, the majority of the perpetrators drive smaller vehicles (usually stolen) and use 9mm pistols and fewer rifles. Though, the long weapons involved in recent killings are known to be restricted to the military. The spokesman said the majority of the weapons come from the US.  No evidence for this is provided.   molly molloy

Ciudad Juárez— Hombres jóvenes, con armas de uso exclusivo del Ejército, a bordo de vehículos recién robados o con placas rojas, son los principales sicarios de Ciudad Juárez, según datos de la Fiscalía General del Estado en la Zona Norte (FGE).

Aproximadamente, el 80 por ciento de los homicidios que se cometen en esta frontera son entre pandillas criminales, que utilizan en su mayoría “armas calibre 9 mm, y también armas largas pero es muy poco”, dijo su vocero, Alejandro Ruvalcaba.

Pero después de 11 años de enfrentamientos entre los grupos del crimen organizado, y más de 15 mil víctimas, la forma de matar en esta ciudad ha cambiado.
