Description
  • Abstract

    The project consists of a database containing all intentional, completed homicides in Switzerland from 1990 till 2014. Information about the offender, the victim and the circumstances of the offences are collected. The offences are categorized into different types of homicide to give consideration to the heterogeneity of this offence. Data were collected in the context of two different SNF-projects. The first one (1990-2004) has already been published (homicide in Switzerland over twenty years [1980-2002]). For the current project, the new data (2005-2014) are completed with the old ones.

Note
It is very important always to filter the dataset with idcase, idvict or idperp, depending on the basis the analyses are made of (offences, victims or offenders). If no filter is used, cases with multiple victims or offenders are counted twice (or even threefold or more). The database with the cases from 1990 till 2004 (first wave) is also available in a separate project (Ref Projekt: 9580 / https://forsbase.unil.ch/project/study-overview/15331), but the researcher suggests to use the complete dataset (1990-2014) for further analyses.
