I finally got around to doing a crime comparison of Botswana with some similarly populous area in the U.S. - Phoenix, Arizona. Phoenix has a population of 1.5 million, Botswana of 1.8 million. Here's how they compare in a similar time period, the month of January (2007 for Phoenix, this year for Botswana):
Phoenix - 17
Botswana - 20
Phoenix - 46
Botswana - 151
Phoenix - 386
Botswana - 204
Not a fair comparison, given that Phoenix is a city and Botswana is a country. Let's compare with 3 provinces, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick & Prince Edward Island, total 1.8 million. Got these figures from 2006 annual stats, divided by 12.
