City Murders Per 100K Population

These are the ten most dangerous cities in the world to live in (or visit, for that matter) in 2022 based on the most recent murder rates per 100,000 inhabitants.

1. Tijuana, Mexico

With 138 homicides per 100,000 citizens reported, the resort city of Tijuana is the most dangerous place in the world.

3. Caracas, Venezuela

Caracas, the capital and largest city of Venezuela, has one of the highest per capita murder rates in the world – 100 homicides per 100,000 inhabitants.
