Abstract

This paper aims to measure violence costs in Belo Horizonte. We use accountability methodology to estimate violence costs in Belo Horizonte in 1999. We consider the following categories of costs: costs of lost lives, health treatment costs, public and private security costs, private insurance costs and the value of direct losses. Our findings suggest that R$ 835,000,000 (eight hundred and thirty five millions of reais) is the amount lost due to violence in Belo Horizonte. This value represents 4.1% of the municipal GDP in 1999.
