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).
