Data has been sourced from the Gallup Global Law and Order Report, Global Peace Index 2018 and guidelines from the FCO.
Gallup asked residents of 142 countries questions about how safe they feel walking alone at night, their confidence with local police, whether they had been assaulted or mugged and more.
They compiled “positive” responses to four questions into a Law and Order Index score for each country. The higher the score, the higher the proportion of the population that reports feeling safe.
