    It means that a lot of countries with apparently low crime figures, the stats are distorted by low reporting and willingness to prosecute

    for example, Jamaica has had one of the highest murder rates in the world for many years, but ranks 58th .. also S Africa .. murder is common place .. and Mexico ... crime ridden with corrupt police ..

    the old adage is true.. lies, damn lies and statistics..
