The Numbeo database has been publishing annual reports since 2009, based on the crime rates in countries around the world. The index of crimes is measured according to the laws of the countries, as there are acts that constitute crimes in some countries while they are not deemed crimes in some other countries, which gives a real measure of the crime rate in countries in accordance with applicable laws.
