Georgia among the world’s safest countries
30 June, 2018
Gallup Inc., an American research-based, global performance-management consulting company has conducted a survey about world’s safest countries and has published a report. According to the report, Gallup’s Law and Order Index used four questions to gauge people’s sense of personal security and their personal experiences with crime and law enforcement. These questions are:

• In the city or area where you live, do you have confidence in the local police force?
• Do you feel safe walking alone at night in the city
or area where you live?
• Within the last 12 months, have you had money or property stolen from you or another household member?
• Within the past 12 months, have you been assaulted or mugged?

The report says that “the 2018 Global Law and Order report presents the results from Gallup’s latest measurements of people’s answers to these questions based on more than 148,000 interviews with adults in 142 countries and areas in 2017”.

According to the report, Georgia’s score is 87 out of 100. “The higher the score, the higher the proportion of the population that reports feeling safe”. Georgia shares same score with Portugal and Turkmenistan.
