# How Many Americans Are Killed By Police?

A question on so many minds is “How many Americans are killed by police?”

The website killedbypolice.net is doing a good job at tracking data as far back as two years ago.

While you can find details of each death on the site, I compiled the monthly numbers into an easy-to-read bar graph.

 2013 May 104 deaths 2013 June 122 deaths 2013 July 108 deaths 2013 August 92 deaths 2013 September 83 deaths 2013 October 108 deaths 2013 November 78 deaths 2013 December 72 deaths 2014 January 79 deaths 2014 February 63 deaths 2014 March 102 deaths 2014 April 95 deaths 2014 May 105 deaths 2014 June 95 deaths 2014 July 97 deaths 2014 August 109 deaths 2014 September 80 deaths 2014 October 91 deaths 2014 November 94 deaths 2014 December 90 deaths 2015 January 91 deaths 2015 February 85 deaths 2015 March 115 deaths

The average variance between months of different years is 14 deaths.

July 2013/2014 had the largest variance at 27 deaths.

May 2013/2014 had the lowest variance at 1 death.

Of the 23 months listed:

8 months saw over 100 deaths a month,
8 months saw 90-100 deaths a month, and
7 months saw under 90 deaths a month.

2013 (8mo: May-December): 767 police-related deaths averaging 96 per month.

2014 (12mo: January-December): 1100 police-related deaths averaging 92 per month.

2015 (3mo: January-March): 291 police-related deaths averaging 97 per month.

The number of Americans killed by police each month averages 94 people per month.
