An increase in homicides in El Salvador?

PNC officials in El Salvador announced that 172 homicides were reported in May 2012, an increase of 16 compared to the 156 reported in April.

Maybe it's just me, but that's not much of an increase.

April has 30 days. Therefore, 5.2 people were killed, on average, each day.

May has 31 days. Therefore, 5.54 people were killed, on average, each day.
