Latin America and the Caribbean is the world´s most crime-ridden region. Its 2012 murder rate of nearly 24 per 100,000 citizens is amongst the world´s highest. One in five Latin Americans report having been victim of a robbery over the past year. The cost of crime varies from 2 percent of GDP to over 10 percent. And while about 30 percent of Latin America´s murders are linked to drug trafficking, Latin America has been violent for decades, even before the rise of major cartels: its murder rate has been five to eight times higher than that of Europe and Asia since the 1950s.
