The Safest Cities in the World in 2021

 

Every 6 months, Numbeo.com releases the ranking of the safest places in the world and the cities with the highest crime rate.

The values shown on these lists are estimates given by the population on their perceived safety and the crimes suffered, criteria chosen to make the whole world equal. Actually, if we based our data on the police reports, we would have excluded countries in which the population has no way of reporting crimes.

Therefore, this is a real ranking, very useful if you are planning a trip to any part of the globe.

Classification Criteria

Numbeo classifies the safety of cities based on the results of the questionnaires spontaneously filled in by users.

Each user of the site can fill in a survey related to his city, giving a score on different factors, which is then processed based on 100.
