Some notes on the Data:
*The way the two countries measure crime is different so this isn’t a scientific comparison. The primary purpose is to show trends. See the sources for a very specific break down of what is counted as violent crime.
*There are some definition changes that happened around the time of the UK gun ban and in 2002 that affect the numbers. I have included additional data sets that measure the crime rates with non-violent exclusions and rates that account for definition changes.
