Gallup Report Ranks Georgia among Secure Countries

The recent report from American research-based, global performance-management consulting company Gallup reads that Georgia is in 17th place among 142 countries for security.

The 2018 Global Law and Order report presents the results from Gallup’s latest measurements of people’s answers to questions based on more than 148,000 interviews with adults in 142 countries and areas in 2017.

In the list, Georgia leads the Black Sea region and is even ahead of Ireland, the UK, the US, Germany and France.

More than two in every three people worldwide say they have confidence in their local police (69%) and feel safe walking alone at night where they live (68%).

One in eight (13%) say they had property stolen from them or another household member in the past year, and 5% say they were assaulted or mugged.

Gallup compiles the positive responses to four questions into a Law and Order Index score for each country. The higher the score, the higher the proportion of the population that reports feeling safe.

The average score for the world in 2017 was 81 out of a possible 100. 86 countries had scores lower than this average. The countries scoring the best and the worst on the index remained unchanged from 2016. Scores worldwide ranged from a high of 97 in Singapore to a low of 44 in Venezuela.
