Bangkok was ranked 39th in the list of the world’s 50 safest cities for 2015. In Asia Bangkok is ranked 14th safest city of 18, just before Dehli.

According to The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Safe Cities Index 2015, it evaluated 50 safest cities in five continents using four indicators;  digital security, health security, infrastructure security and personal hygiene.

The Index focuses on 50 cities selected by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), based on factors such as regional representation and availability of data. Therefore, it should not be considered a comprehensive list of the world’s safest cities (ie, a city coming number 50 in the list does not make it the most perilous place to live in the world).

Tokyo safest in the world

Coming top in the list were Tokyo with 85.63 scores, and trailing behind respectively were  Singapore, Osaka, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Sydney, Zurich, Toronto, Melbourne and New York.

Bangkok came in 39th position, while Jakarta ranked 50th with 53.71 scores.

But Bangkok ranked 14th safest cities in the Asia Pacific,  followed respectively by Delhi, Mumbai, and Ho Chi Minh City. The top five most secure cities in Asia are Tokyo, Singapore, Osaka, Sydney and Melbourne.

The survey data show that Singapore in digital security is eligible 83.85 points, only 3.33 points behind  Tokyo.

The Index is scored across four categories.Safe_cities_index_infographic-web

Each category comprises between three and eight sub-indicators, which are divided between security inputs, such as policy measures and level of spending, and outputs, such as the frequency of vehicular accidents.

The Index focuses on 50 cities selected by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), based on factors such as regional representation and availability of data.
