Deaths by Homicide in the US
"Assault (homicide), the 16th leading cause of death in 2019, dropped from among the 15 leading causes of death in 2010. In 2019, the age-adjusted rate for homicide did not change significantly from 2018. Homicide remains a major issue for some age groups. Homicide was among the 15 leading causes of death in 2019 for age groups under 1 year (13th), 1–4 (4th), 5–14 (5th), 15–24 (3rd), 25–34 (3rd), 35–44 (5th), 45–54 (12th), and 55–64 (15th) (10)."
