The rankings are based on a report from the Institute for Economics and Peace, which measured 24 different metrics, taking into account statistical factors such as murder rates and military expenditure, as well as perceptions of criminality and terrorism levels.
The factors are combined into a single number, called the Global Peace Index (GPI). The lower this is, the safer a country is regarded.
