Project Description

Democracy International is currently conducting a study to analyze available information on homicides in the Northern Triangle countries of Central America—Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador—and attempt to disaggregate homicide data by perpetrator. Specifically, the study attempts to identify whether homicides were committed by gangs or drug trafficking organizations and assess the differences between these cases. The study will also analyze and attempt to explain disparities in homicide data collected by different official agencies as well as examine challenges in data collection.
