The ranking is based on data collected from surveys conducted by visitors on Numbeo’s website. The list included 195 countries.

“A safety index is the opposite of a crime index,” Numbeo said on its website. “If the city has a high safety index, it is considered very safe.”

Meanwhile, a crime index estimates the overall level of crime in a given city or country.

“We consider crime levels of 20 as very low, crime levels between 20 and 40 as low, crime levels between 40 and 60 as moderate, crime levels between 60 and 80 as high, and crime levels higher than 80 as very high,” Numbeo said.
