Gauging the Personal Security of the World

Who feels the most and the least secure worldwide? The Law and Order Index answers this based on people's reported confidence in their local police, whether they feel safe walking alone at night where they live and the incidence of theft and assault or mugging in the past year. The higher the score on the index, the higher the proportion of the population that reports feeling secure.
