It is always a best practice to know the risk factor about a place before you plan your travel, well , why?
Because every country is not enforced with strict rules and regulations for people's security, the law and order are not equal for the globe and the confidence on their local police is not same across countries, which are the major factors which influence a country's safety.
It is said the more the confidence you have on your local police, the more you are safe, isn't it !
Gallup, a 1935 established company which is known for its public opinion polls conducts law and order index poll every year.
Gallup measures the index score with its intelligently framed below 4 questions for the people.
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 ?
And 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.
These are the 5 riskiest countries having lowest index score.
*Lower the safety meter value denote riskier to travel.
Venezuela’s second consecutive appearance at the bottom of the list reflects a country still in crisis: Just 17% of residents said they felt safe walking alone at night where they live, and 24% expressed confidence in their police. Both percentages are up somewhat from the record-lows set in Venezuela in 2016, which were the lowest scores Gallup had measured worldwide since 2005.
