Couldn't replicate this list. On the subject of homicide only, your top ten are ranked 111th (USA), 201st (Germany), 191st (France), 66th (Russia), 194th (Italy), 170th (Canada), 135th (Chile), 180th (Poland), 200th (Spain), and 196th (Netherlands) at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate

Mexico? South Africa? China? Brazil? India?

I'm in serious doubts that Italy, Canada or France would have a higher crime rate than any of these countries. What's your source for this quiz?

Those are reported crimes to the police. The source of the website is the United Nation Office on Drugs and Crime.

(1) The mapsoftheworld website claims that this data shows that Europe is a dangerous place to live, but PanosG31 insists that the fact that Europe is overwhelmingly near the bottom of the murder rankings is irrelevant.(?) (2) If you actually go to the UN website (https://data.unodc.org) you'll see that at least the UN (unlike mapsoftheworld) knows the difference between a raw count and a rate. (3) The UN website also reveals that it is missing data from many countries. (4) The UN also has the following sensible disclaimer: "Please note that when using the figures, any cross-national comparisons should be conducted with caution because of the differences that exist between the legal definitions of offences in countries, or the different methods of offence counting and recording."

I almost forgot: (5) This data isn't counting crimes, it's counting "persons suspected, or arrested or cautioned, for a criminal offence".

Even more fascinating facts: (7) The numbers of mapsoftheworld match the UN numbers for 2011, except mapsoftheworld simply dropped 2 countries that were in the real top ten: India and Turkey. Where is mapsoftheworld headquartered? Answer: India. (8) If you take the *rates* rather than the raw counts from unodc.org, the real top ten are Botswana, Grenada, Finland, Guyana, New Zealand, Luxembourg, Andorra, Liechtenstein, the USA, and Scotland. (9) The UN has 193 member states, but only 79 (41%) of them have data for 2011 at unodc.org.

No way. Either this is very badly phrased or researched.
