From Princeton sociologist Patrick Sharkey on 2020 vs. 2019 murders.

The map/graphs aren’t that useful, other than that red is up in 2020, while green is down. Note there is a typo: “Jan 2019 – Oct 2020” should read “Jan 2020 – Oct 2020:”

From Jeff Asher’s Crimealytics spreadsheet, a running tally of murders year-to-date across 59 cities, with a mean date of last update of September 18:
