Kohler-Barnard, Ms D to ask the Minister of Police
What was the murder rate per 100 000 persons for (a) children, (b) women, (c) farmers and (d) men in the (i) 2016-17, (ii) 2017-18, (iii) 2018-19 and (iv) 2019-20 financial years?
Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) is responsible for the production of population estimates. The South African Police Service (SAPS) does not calculate the murder rate, per 100 000 persons, for (a), (b), (c) and (d), due to the complexity of the determination of the population estimates around those variables. Stats SA applies specific models and the SAPS does not have record of the models for population e6timates and computations. The crime statistics for 2019/2020 have not been published by the Minister of Police.
