In 20189, the number of homicides in Brazil reached the lowest figure of the whole covered period, amounting to approximately 45.5 thousand occurrences. In comparison to a year earlier, this represents a decrease of 12,400 incidents. That same year, Bahia was the Brazilian state reporting the largest number of homicide cases.
The source notes that the notable descend of homicides registered in 2019 may be due to a deterioration in data quality, as reflected by the disproportionate increase in the number of violent deaths by undetermined manner (which grew by 69,9 percent between 2017 and 2019). Therefore, the source estimates that there could be around 5.338 more homicides than officially recorded in 2019.
