IN 2022, NUMBER OF VIOLENT DEATHS INCREASED IN THE SOUTH OF BRAZIL

Among Brazil’s five regions, the South came in 4th place in terms of violent intentional deaths (IVD) in 2022. The region had a total of 5,438 violent deaths, and 18.2 IVDs per 100,000 inhabitants. Even though, the region remained distant from the top positions, occupied by the Northeast and the North regions respectively, it was one of the two regions that went against the national trend and had an increase in the total number of IVDs and in the IVD rate. In addition, it was the region where violent deaths increased the most. Porto Alegre (RS) was the Southern capital with the worst results. The data is the result of a large research, the 2023 Brazilian Public Security Yearbook, carried out by the Public Security Forum (Forum de Segurança Pública).
