Ever since 1965 murder has been listed as one of the top 15 causes of death all across America. For the first time since then it has officially been removed from the top 15 causes as the murder rate has declined overall . Not only has the murder percentage dropped, the actual number of murders has also declined dramatically which is great news for anyone and everyone living anywhere in the United States.
The total number of murders is still quite high according to analysts but overall the reduction is a very good sign. Even more interesting is the fact that researchers and analysts were actually quite surprised by the results of the study since this result hasn’t actually occurred in such a long time. The drop in murders around the country is relatively consistent in nearly every city around the country and every demographic area. In every possible way analysts say that this is good news for everyone, obviously other things have now become part of the top 15 causes but the fact that murder has been delisted is great news for everyone.
A reparatory illness is now the number 15 cause of death and since it only generally affects older people it is likely not a concern for a majority of people. This should bring comfort and security to many people around the country as the technical chance of death is in fact slightly lower than before.
