68% OF MURDERS TAKE PLACE IN JUST 5% OF ALL US COUNTIES

No one is surprised to know that most of the murders in the US take place in larger metropolitan areas. Not only are there larger concentrations of people in larger city areas, but they also have larger concentrations of people living in poverty and higher unemployment rates. Unfortunately, poverty and unemployment often breed crime. Many turn to drug trafficking and prostitution as a way to make a living. Others turn to stealing and selling the stolen goods for pennies on the dollar, just earn enough money to buy food, alcohol or drugs. Even more unfortunately, with higher drug related crime, the higher the murder rate in those same areas.

The Crime Prevention Research Center tracks locations of various crimes, including murder. They track them by state and county. They use what is known as the Federal Information Processing Standards FIPS) code. Each state and territory is given a 2-digit code. Each county within the states is given a 3-digit code. Combining them in a 5-digit code, one can track every county in every state. An example, California’s state code is 06 and the code for Los Angeles County is 037, so the combined FIPS code for Los Angeles County is 06 037. All toll, the FIPS code lists 3,177 counties.

From 1977 to 2000, 73% of all US counties had zero murders. However, based upon 2014 figures, that percentage of murder-free counties has dropped to 53.6% (1,704 counties). Murders have been spreading to more rural counties in conjunction with the spread of heroin-opioid drug use into more rural areas, thanks largely to Barack Obama’s open border policies and failure to secure the border.
