Homicide is currently at a record low in Scotland. In 2014-15, there were 59 homicides committed (including murder and culpable homicide), which is the lowest figure since 1976, and the homicide rate has more than halved over the past twenty years. But this is not just a numbers game. Although we know that homicides have decreased, we still do not know what types of homicides have decreased. Have all types of homicide decreased together, or are there certain types of homicides that might have remained stable, or even increased, over the past twenty years?
