Safety of Cities in 2017
The Economist’s intelligence Unit has released their 2017 Safe Cities Index, a report “based on the second iteration of the index, which ranks 60 cities across 49 indicators covering digital security, health security, infrastructure security and personal security.”
The report notes that America’s crumbling infrastructure has lowered many American cities’ overall ranking on the index. You can read more about that issue on our recent infrastructure blog post. The result is no US city ranked in the top 10, with only San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Chicago making the top 20.
