Notes:
There is a difference in the total amount of crimes given by the INEGI and the Gobernment of Quintana Roo in 2007.
The reason is how they have classified the types of crimes beacuse in some cases one felony may involve more than one crime.

The Government of Quintana Roo has not yet made nformation public for 2008. We could only obtain the percentages for Benito Juarez and Cozumel directly in the Police Office of Cozumel.
