Report: Switzerland is world’s safest country...

Provided you're not mountain climbing, skiing off-piste or base jumping, Switzerland is the safest country in the world, according to a new study.

The report, carried out by New York-based research and analysis website ValuePenguin, puts Switzerland at the top of a list ranking the safety of 107 countries with accessible data.

The study is based on data gathered in seven topic areas “chosen because of their connectedness to the idea of ‘everyday safety’, but also because they were the most available for as many countries as we could fairly include in the study,” said the report.

Those seven areas comprise population figures, the number of thefts, assaults and traffic deaths, CO2 emission levels, police officers per head of population and life expectancy.


According to ValuePenguin’s methodology, Switzerland came out on top, followed by Singapore, Spain, Japan and Cyprus. Full story...
