An investigation by the Economist of 50 cities worldwide, places Amsterdam on number 5 of the safest cities in the world.
The 4 safer cities are Tokyo, Singapore, Osaka and Stockholm.
This general list is made up of 4 specific safety indexes: digital security, health security, infrastructure security and personal safety.
Amsterdam ranges 4 on infrastructure security, 9 on personal safety, 17 on digital security and 13 on health security.
Why Amsterdam is still number 5 on the list of the 4 indeces combined, is something you may perhaps figure out in the full report. This can be downloaded for free on this page.
