|Violent Crime Victimization
||Where in the United States do juvenile homicides occur?
||About 1 in 5 reported murders of juveniles in 2012 occurred in just 5 of the Nation's more than 3,000 counties.
- The major cities in these five counties (beginning with the city in the county with the most murdered juveniles) are Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Detroit, and Houston. Note that no data were reported for Florida and Alabama, and many of the individual counties in other States underreported.
