Official statistics show the number of women being killed is rising. Data we’ve collected for the past 5 years gives insight into who these women were and what happened to them.

In South Africa, the murder rate among municipal ward councillors is six times higher than the national rate of 45 murders per 100,000 people

This number is higher than the year before. SA has one of the worst rates of female homicides in the world, according to the UN.

One province is driving this increase – Gauteng

The latest crime stats show that fewer home burglaries have been reported this year at the 10 police stations that reported the highest number of cases before Covid.

Over three years, police watchdog IPID logged 48 cases where police officers allegedly killed their current or former intimate partners.

The Outlier looked at the latest crime stats for the last three months of 2021 and beyond to see if more kidnapping cases are being reported to the police.

Reports of most violent crimes dropped significantly following the start of the lockdown and the alcohol ban in March 2020.
