This table contains the number of persons died as a result of murder or manslaughter, where the crime scene is located in the Netherlands. The victims can be residents or non-residents of the Netherlands. The data can be split by location of the crime, method, age and sex. The criterion is the date of death, the date of the criminal act can be in the previous year.
Since 2014 the figures cannot be split by both sex and age for the location and method variables, due to small numbers and the distribution this split could lead to disclosure of individual information.
Since 2013 Statistics Netherlands is using Iris for automatic coding for causes of death. This improved the international comparison of the data. The change in coding did cause a considerable shift in the statistics. Since 2013 the (yearly) ICD-10 updates are applied. However for murder and manslaughter no changes in coding have taken place.
The ICD-10 codes that belong to murder and manslaughter are X85-Y09.
