Enter the number of homicides and the total population into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Homicide Rate.

## Homicide Rate Formula

HR = H / P * 100000

Variables:

- HR is the Homicide Rate (homicides per 100,000 people)
- H is the number of homicides
- P is the total population

To calculate the Homicide Rate, divide the number of homicides by the total population by 100000.

## How to Calculate Homicide Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Homicide Rate.

- First, determine the number of homicides.
- Next, determine the total population.
- Next, gather the formula from above = HR = H / P * 100000.
- Finally, calculate the Homicide Rate.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
