The Economist Intelligence Unit creates a lot of interesting data. One report which caught our interest is the the Safe Cities Index which ranks 60 cities across 49 indicators covering digital security, health security, infrastructure security and personal security. The Safe Cities Index 2017 is most recent study, the 2018 report isn’t out yet, although we think the findings will be pretty similar. In general Asian cities rank quite high, specifically Japanese cities are remarkably safe.
The Top 10 Safest Cities in 2017 were dominated by Asian and European cities. Tokyo, Singapore, Osaka and Hong Kong represent the Asian contribution while Amsterdam, Stockholm and Zurich are European. Toronto, Melbourne and Sydney also figure quite prominently.
