Gallup's Law and Order Index is a worldwide measure that gauges people's sense of personal security in their neighborhoods and their personal experiences with crime and law enforcement. The higher the index score, the higher the proportion of residents in a country who feel safe. This index is important for leaders to monitor because of the strong relationships between these measures and external measures related to economic and social development.
The Global Law and Order 2015 report presents Gallup's latest index results, based on more than 142,000 interviews with adults in 141 countries in 2014.
This report includes exclusive measures that show:
- the countries where people feel least, most secure
- global confidence in police
- the countries where people feel least safe walking alone at night
