Published by Business Insider on Thu, 12 Oct 2017

Big cities aren't necessarily unsafe.In fact, some of the safest citiesin the world are urban hubsthat boast low crime rates and high levels of safety.The Economist's 2017 safe cities index, sponsored by NEC,ranked 60 cities based on the factors of personal security, digital security, health security, and infrastructure security.Personal security takes into account urban crime, terrorism, and other violence. Digital security measures threats like cyber attacks. Health security considers healthcare access, hospitals, and emergency services. Infrastructure security looks into cities with safe buildings, roads, and bridges. The Economist analyzed 49 indicators across each aspect of security in order to come up with a score out of 100. Safer cities received higher scores.Overall, however, The Economist found that man-made dangers, like cyber threats, terrorism, and inequality-induced violence are on the rise in urban areas.No US cities cracked the very top of the listSan Francisco came closest, with a ranking of 15.
