Unit of measurement

на 100 000 человек


The total count of victims of intentional homicide divided by the total population, expressed per 100,000 population.


Intentional homicide is defined as the unlawful death inflicted upon a person with the intent to cause death or serious injury (Source: International Classification of Crime for Statistical Purposes, ICCS 2015).

Rationale and interpretation

This indicator is widely used at national and international level to measure the most extreme form of violent crime and it also provides a direct indication of lack of security. Security from violence is a prerequisite for individuals to enjoy a safe and active life and for societies and economies to develop freely. Intentional homicides occur in all countries of the world and this indicator has a global applicability. Monitoring intentional homicides is necessary to better assess their causes, drivers and consequences and, in the longer term, to develop effective preventive measures. If data are properly disaggregated (as suggested in the ICCS 2015), the indicator can identify the different type of violence associated with homicide: inter-personal (including partner and family-related violence), crime (including organized crime and other forms of criminal activities) and socio-political (including terrorism, hate crime).

Method of computation

The proportion of the total number of victims of intentional homicide recorded in a given year divided by the total resident population in the same year. Calculated per 100,000 population.

Comments and limitations

The ICCS 2015 provides important clarifications on the definition of intentional homicide. In particular, it states that the following killings are included in the count of homicide:

  • Murder
  • Honour killing
  • Serious assault leading to death
  • Death as a result of terrorist activities
  • Dowry-related killings
  • Femicide
  • Infanticide
  • Voluntary manslaughter
  • Extrajudicial killings
  • Killings caused by excessive force by law enforcement/state officials. Furthermore, the ICCS provides indications on how to distinguish between intentional homicides, killings directly related to war/conflict and other killings that amount to war crimes.
Quality assurance

Logical and arithmetic control of the reported data is performed. Death data verification in death records is carried out through logical control, embedded in the data input and development software. Death codes provided in the death records based on the diagnoses are brought in line with ICD-10. Analysis of output tables by death causes.

Data availability and gaps

Data on suicide deaths are published in statistical compendiums “Women and Men in the KR”, “Social trends in the KR”, “Statistical yearbook of the KR”, “Kyrgyzstan in figures”, and are placed at the NSC website.


By area – country, oblast, district By sex – both genders – mena and women.

Comparability with international data/standards

The national indicator definition used in statistics corresponds to its international definition. Death data are coded and processed according to death causes by the state statistical bodies in line with the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Causes of Death, 10th revision (ICD-10) of the World Health Organization (WHO) since submission of 2000 Report. As agreed with the NSC, the mortality database is transferred to the eHealth Centre of the Kyrgyz Republic under the Ministry of Health: Form 2 Information on the Number of Births, Marriages, Divorces and Deaths by death causes monthly, with a 1.5 month delay of the reporting month; and Form C52 Mortality by Death Causes annually, in June in the year following the reporting year.
