A fascinating 61 page report available on this link from regional stats house Latinobárometro, all about crime, laws and regional attitudes thereof, which has dragged your humble scribe away from the things he should be doing this fine morning (i.e. checking out quarterlies just published by the miners). A veritable boatload of information is offered, from which just one dataset has been chosen and stuck in chart form for your general edification, education and enlightenment:
Here we see the percentage of people who answered "yes" to a question about whether they or any member of their family had been a victim of crime in the last 12 months. Top score (if 'top' is the right word here) went to Mexico, with Peru close behind. Then come a whole bunch in the 30s, a couple in the 20s and the only real outlier to the stats set at the end, with Panama pretty safe compared to the others.
