The actual number of scientific studies into homicide and manslaughter is limited, as detailed or structurally gathered information on this subject was not available. This gap was filled when WODC joined forces with the National Investigation Information department (dNRI) of the National Police Services Agency (KLPD) to create a database “Murder and Manslaughter", initially completed with detailed information about all murders committed in 1998. This memorandum describes the structure and type of information kept in this database and reports on the findings for the year 1998.
