MAGA: The largest increase in murders in 100 years
  • According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the United States has just recorded the highest homicide increase in modern history.

    Preliminary data from the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics, released early Wednesday morning, showed the United States homicide rate rose 30% between 2019 and 2020. This is the highest growth recorded in modern history, that is, confirmed by public health data, an increase in the number of homicides, which until now has only been identified using crime statistics.

    According to the NCHS, the previous largest increase (by 20%) in the number of murders in the United States was recorded between 2000 and 2001 due to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
    "This is the largest increase in 100 years," said Robert Anderson, chief of mortality statistics at NCHS.
    "The only time the recorded increase was greater than it is now was between 1904 and 1905, and this increase was most likely - at least in part - the result of better reporting," Anderson told CNN. "We had states that were added to what we call death registration areas, so over time we counted deaths in more areas. We didn't have all state records until 1933."

    New data shows that the U.S. homicide rate has increased from about six murders per 100,000 in 2019 to 7.8 per 100,000 in 2020, according to the NCHS. Center researchers noted that the 2020 murder rate of 7.8 is the highest recorded in the United States since 1995, but still significantly lower than the rate in the early 1980s, which exceeded 10 murders per 100,000. human.

    "So this is obviously a concern, but we're not at the level we were at the time," Anderson said. "Although we are definitely heading in the wrong direction."
