Methodology

To determine the safest cities in the world, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed data from the 2021 Safe Cities Index of the Economist Intelligence Unit, sponsored by NEC Corporation, an information technology company. The report ranks 60 cities across 76 indicators covering digital security, health security, infrastructure security, environmental security, and personal security. Data on population came from the World Population Review, which is based on data from the World Urbanization Prospects of the United Nations. Data on population density is from the June 2021 edition of the World Urban Areas report from urban development website Demographia.
