Assault Trend for selected OECD Countries

Assault trend seen in various OECD countries (a summary from crime trend in individual country):

a) US: 1970 – 2005
b) UK: 1970 – 2005
c) Sweden: 1970 – 2005

d) Canada: 1990 -2005
e) Japan: 1990 – 2005
f) Norway: 1993 – 2005

g) Australia: 1995 -2005
h) Denmark: 1995 – 2005
i) Finland: 1995 – 2005

So, basically my question is: other than Canada (& US trends down since 1990), why assault rate increases in most of the countries? Any thought?
