Myths of Ciudad Juarez

  • The homicide rate in Ciudad Juarez was not different from other border cities.
  • The homicide rate for women, while certainly higher than average for Mexico, was lower than in other large urban areas and not significantly different from other border cities.
  • Ciudad Juarez is not poor or particularly unequal as measured by its gini coefficients relative to other Mexican municipalities.
