In 2020, the number of murders in most large American cities rose sharply. They continued to go up in January and into the spring. Now, as we reach the one-year anniversary of last year’s surge in violent crime, which began in early June, murder rates are beginning to level off. Some cities are even seeing decreases, but the figures for the year so far still beat last year’s.
|New York City|
|January through June||192||213||+ 10.9%|
|January through June||334||336||+ 0.6%|
Note: In 2019, the total number of homicides in Chicago between January and June was 252.
|January through June||79||93||+17.7%|
