Homicide, deaths in traffic accidents, other lethal accidents and suicide are, by incidence, the causes of violent deaths. Forensic medicine and auxiliary disciplines have made significant scientific contributions to formalize an epidemiology of these phenomena, ethnology being the commonly used methodological choice. This paper proposes two different approaches in order to contribute to this epidemiology, on the understanding that it is a phenomenon that has spread in the country for decades and has affected a considerable contingent of population size. The first is the basic geography of the incidence of violent deaths by town, describing their spatial regularities, while the second chooses the statistical analysis under the assumption that five spatial regimes identified with demographic and economic criteria exist and each one will verify the temporary continuities and certain hierarchy linked to trends in employment or unemployment of the Colombian territory.
Key words: Human Geography, spatial regimes, homicidal violence.
