Venezuela 2014 Crime and Safety Report
Caracas rated as the third most violent city in the world — up from sixth place in 2012 — and another Mexican NGO, Security Justice and Peace, ranks it number two. A number of factors explain the pervasive criminality in Caracas including poorly paid, under-armed, and often corrupt police forces; an inefficient and politicized judicial system; a system of violent and overcrowded prisons that are frequently managed with impunity by prison gang leaders themselves; and country-wide saturation of millions of illegal weapons.
Venezuela remained one of the deadliest countries in the world for 2013. There is no evidence to indicate criminals are specifically targeting U.S. citizens. Much of Caracas’s crime and violence can be attributed to mobile street gangs and organized crime groups.

Hispanic population of the U.S. grows sixfold since 1970
Washington. – While the population of the United States has grown 12% since 1970, until reaching 317 million inhabitants, the number of Hispanics in this country has grown sixfold and reached 53.03 million in 2012 according to study by the Pew Center released today.
The independent social investigation group analyzed Census Bureau figures and found that Los Angeles County, in California, with 4,751 million Hispanics in a population of 9.88 million, has almost 9% of all the Hispanics in the country.
But that county is barely the fourth one among the ones that have the larger proportion of Hispanics in the general population: in Miami-Dade County (Florida) Hispanics are 64.5% of the population; in Bexar (Texas) they are 58.9% and in San Bernardino (California) they are 49.9%.
Pew noted that the Hispanic population in the U.S. has grown almost 50% since 2000, and that increase represents more than half of the population increase of the country during that time.
In large measure, the growth occurs in relatively small geographic areas.
The most explosive growth of the Hispanic population in a county between 2000 and 2011 took place in Stewart (Georgia) where that group grew 1,754%, followed by Telfair county, in that same state, with an increase of 849%.
Mexicans continue being the largest group among Hispanics, although with regional variations.
Although Hispanics of Mexican origin are the majority of the latinos in 39 states, the Puerto Ricans (Ed. Note: American at birth) are the major group in New York and New Jersey, and the Cubans are in Florida.
Hispanics of Mexican origin tend to be the youngest among the most numerous fourteen groups of latinos, with an average age of 25 years.
Regarding the educational system, Venezuelans have the highest percentage of the Hispanic population with a university diploma, with 51%, in contrast with 7% of the Guatemalans and Salvadorans.
