The rate of crime in Hong Kong is not that big. New york’s murder rate is 14 times Hong Kong’s. However Hong Kong still does have crime and 75,000 crimes took place in 2012. Even though Hong Kong it is not completely free of violence – it is still a safe place to be. Inequality and poverty are some of the main factors of crime in Hong Kong.”The number of mainland illegal immigrants arrested for crime has fallen to one-sixth of what it was 10 years ago, and the number of mainland visitors arrested for offences has also fallen, even though their numbers have increased massively.” Hong Kong Tax is some of the lowest in the world and is very well developed. Therefore, the education in Hong Kong included everyone. The better the education is, the less crime occurs.
