World’s safest cities

The Economist Intelligence Unit’s 2019 Safe Cities Index (SCI) has ranked 60 destinations across the world in terms of their digital security, health security, infrastructure and personal safety. Topping the list is Tokyo. The most populated metropolis on Earth earns a score of 92.0 out of a possible 100. Singapore is hot on its heels in second place with 91.5 and another Japanese metropolis, Osaka, is third, with 90.9. No big shocks there, these cities also made up the top three in the two previous SCI rankings, conducted in 2015 and 2017. European cities including Amsterdam and Copenhagen also made the top 10, at number four and number eight respectively. The only US city to hit the top 10 was capital Washington DC (number 7). Bottom of the list, at number 60, is Lagos in Nigeria, with a score of 38.1. Also in the final five are Caracas in Venezuela, Yangon in Myanmar, Karachi in Pakistan and Dhaka in Bangladesh.
