October 2017 – The Economist has published the   Safer Cities Report  that analyses the results of the 2017 index, both overall and by each of the four categories: digital security, health security, infrastructure security, and personal security. Additional insight into the index results and urban safety, more generally, was gained through interviews with experts. Three members of the GPM Advisory Committee, Robert Muggah, Michael Nutter and Elizabeth Johnston, have been involved in the establishment of the Safer Cities Report.

The Safe Cities Index 2017 is a report from The Economist Intelligence Unit sponsored by NEC. The report is based on the second iteration of the index, which ranks 60 cities across 49 indicators covering digital security, health security, infrastructure security and personal security.
