Homicide in Australia 1999-2000



Monitoring trends and patterns in homicide in Australia has been made possible through the National Homicide Monitoring Program and its annual collection of data relating to police recorded homicides. This paper analyses the data for the year 1 July 1999 to 30 June 2000, and provides a statistical snapshot of homicide in Australia. It includes details on the status of homicide investigations, weapons and methods of homicide, trends in victim offender relationships, victim and offender demographics, and homicide causes.
