Talk to Pablo Piccato at Columbia before you give up hope - he's got a great book on crime in Mexico City in an earlier period and incredible state-level data online (http://www.columbia.edu/~pp143/estadisticascrimen/EstadisticasSigloXX.htm)

Awesome, I look forward to reading. I was going to suggest checking state govts too, since murder is the fuero comun I would imagine the states would have done more to collect that info.

In addition to luther's suggestion, I would say that you might want to contact Professor Roderic Ai Camp (http://www.claremontmckenna.edu/pages/faculty/RCamp/) since he wrote the book "Mexico: What everyone needs to know" and in that book he mentions the Mexican homicide rate experiencing a "fairly consistent decline from the 1950s to 2007" (
This is the link for the google book preview of Professor Roderic Ai Camp's book
so you can see that quote and what else he has to say on Mexican homicides)

Since he makes reference to the homicide rate declining consistently from the 1950s to 2007 I would assume he had access to the homicide rates for that entire time period.

Hope that helps.


Also very nice for your Puebla-style food needs.
