Lagos ranked 56th safest city in the world (FULL LIST)

Lagos

In a research list published by The Economist, Lagos has ranked 56th safest city in the world.

Copenhagen in Denmark has been ranking the world’s safest city, a position previously held by Tokyo, as a study published every two years by The Economist.

The report ranked cities around the world in terms of safety based on five different categories: digital security, health security, security in infrastructure, personal security, and newly integrated environmental security.

In four out of five categories, Copenhagen overranked the former leaders of Tokyo, with Japan only rating health security higher.

The Danish capital received a total safety score of 82.4 and Toronto received an 82.2 score.

However, only one of the five categories – Personal security – was ruled by the Danish capital.

When asked in the report about what makes Copenhagen such a safe city, lord mayor Lars Weiss said: ‘One key factor that makes Copenhagen such a safe city is its low crime rate, currently at its lowest level in more than a decade. We focus greatly on early intervention with preventive initiatives. 

‘Copenhagen is also characterised by great social cohesion and a relatively narrow wealth gap. It is a mixed city where both the cleaning assistant and the CEO meet each other at the local supermarket and have their kids in the same school.’

Despite this, the lord mayor did concede that the city still has a problem dealing with ‘repeat youth offenders.

Commenting on ranking Copenhagen as their safest city, the Economist wrote: ‘Toronto and Copenhagen do noticeably better in the new environmental security pillar than do any of the top-three cities from earlier years.

‘Copenhagen is definitely a worthy overall leader and Toronto a well-deserving runner-up, but as much because of long-term success in making residents secure as from any particular improvements in the last two years.’
