Barbados Murder Statistics January 2023 –

MAY 20 2023 UPDATE: The original murder map showed the 3 murders (for January) taking place in St. Michael. This was incorrect and the map has been updated (The Murder by Parish charts has also been corrected).

There have been at least 3 murders in Barbados for the month of January (2023). During the same month last year, there were no murders reported. January to December 2022 data and analysis can be found here. My analysis is based solely on media reports. The steps involved in the following analysis are similar to my 2020 analysis.

Chart 8 – Murders by Time Slot, January 2023

Note to Chart 8: The time reported in The Media of the incident is what I use to assign murders to one of four time slots. However, it is important to note that in some cases, this may not be when the victim was attacked (or their time of death). That being said, 2 of the 3 murders (67%) took place between 4 PM and 8 PM. is the personal blog of Amit Uttamchandani.
