After a long hiatus (due in part to time spent tracking and posting data on Covid-19 and the 2022 General Elections), it’s time to catch up on tracking murders across Barbados.

Data presented below is from January to April 2022 (I will post 2021 numbers in the near future). The steps involved in the analysis essentially remain the same from those carried out in the 2020 analysis.
