I think it's odd just because of the popularity of places like Spain and France. Statistically places like Mexico and Columbia are going to be more dangerous (looking at murder stats) but they're aren't as popular as tourist destinations.

yes these are totals, and more revealing would be per number of visitors. Tunisia was due to a massacre prior to that it was prob low.

The tourist industry of each respective nation is very good at not publicising tourist deaths, harms business. Florida used to be really bad, they had tourist car number plates at one stage which was very handy to those preying on them. After one-too-many shoot-robberies they changed the policy. These are also British tourists, not total tourists, which would be of more help.

Another interesting statistic would be the number of tourists in the UK who get murdered. They do happen but they tend to be just local news. People get murdered in sleepy old Dorset, including foreign tourists/foreign language students, people have been murdered on the housing estate I live on, and on my favourite holiday resort destination, neither of them especially dangerous.
