The graph below from The World Bank Database tells the story of the Caribbean’s ability to systematically collect crime data that can remotely be considered useful to an analysis of the type similar to a CSI.
Since the scale is a 0 – 100 scale it can be useful to give a grade to the scores.
The best data only rate a B- with the three next best rating a D. All the rest Fail with an F.

And unharmonized socio-demographic data are error prone and almost impossible to use properly to extrapolate the probability of crime against a yacht in a specific anchorage, mooring or marina.

The Statistical Capacity Indicator provides an overview of the capacity of a country’s national statistical system based on a diagnostic framework thereby assessing three dimensions: Methodology, Source Data, and Periodicity and Timeliness.
