Intentional homicide is defined as unlawful death inflicted upon a person with the intent to cause death or serious injury.

United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) regularly provides global statistical series on crime, criminal justice, drug trafficking and prices, drug production, and drug use. Data produced by UNODC have multiple sources. Member States regularly submit to UNODC statistics on drugs (through the Annual Report Questionnaire) and crime and criminal justice (through the annual Survey on Crime Trends and Operations of Criminal Justice Systems). Other data are collected through national surveys implemented by UNODC in cooperation with national governments or are compiled from scientific literature. UNODC also applies scientific methods to maximize the comparability of the data and to estimate regional and global statistics.

UNODC develops a number of statistical standards and recommendations in the fields of crime, criminal justice and illicit drugs in collaboration with national experts and relevant international organizations. The objective is to enhance the comparability of statistics at the international level and to support country-level efforts to produce national statistics on drugs, crime and criminal justice.
