29. Possibly?
"Can anybody think of some differences between Canada and the US that could explain this fact?"

iverglas, haveing been to Canada a few times years ago, my memory of it is likely an inaccurate source for answers to my question.

Could it be that canada is less urban for starters? Now, I'm not saying its necessarily true, I'm asking. If it is true, could it be one of the factors? Economics is not one of my strong suits iether, but how about less disparity of income?(guessing)Possibly a whole slew of economic reasons?


I wouldn't presume to know many reasons to explain the difference in homicide rates, but I would like to learn more.
