EIU has issued its annual report on the safest countries in the world, and relied on a number of classifications and standards to measure safety and peace in each country through indicators covering digital and health safety, besides personal and infrastructure, where the report covers 60 cities.
In the first place came Tokyo, the Capital of Japan, with a score of 92 out of 100 due to the presence of wide range of strengths factors such as infrastructure designed to withstand catastrophic events, as well as the low crime rate and high quality of medical services.
The index indicated that Tokyo remains one of the world's best-managed cities and that safety has been a long-term priority for its urban government for years.
However, this does not mean that countries in the first places have the absolute advantage in all categories of the survey made since cities like Washington and Chicago work best in the main category such as digital security, which qualified them to the top ten.
It is quiet notable that six out of ten
countries are located in Asia-Pacific, as Singapore, Seoul and Melbourne ranked
second, eighth and tenth respectively.
