These Are the Safest Cities Around the World

Ranked on everything from street crime to cyber security.

With the vast majority of us living in cities (including 82 percent of North America’s population), safety is a key factor in quality of life and liveability.

Other factors of note included a safe transport infrastructure — which played a role in Sydney and Melbourne‘s ranking — and a secure business environment. See the full list below.
