Lagos has ranked 56th safest city in the world in a research list published by The Economist The research, which is published by The Economist every two years, ranked Copenhagen in Denmark as the safest city in the world, a position previously held by Tokyo.   The report ranked the safety ratings of cities around the world based on five distinct categories: Digital Security, Health Security, Infrastructure Security, Personal Security, and the newly incorporated Environmental Security. Copenhagen outranked former leaders Tokyo in four out of the five categories, with the Japanese capital only ranking higher on health security.  The Danish capital received an overall safety score of 82.4 and was closely followed by Toronto which was scored 82.2. Despite this, the Danish capital only led the world one of the five categories – Personal Security. When asked in the report about what makes Copenhagen such a safe city, lord mayor Lars Weiss said: ‘One key factor that makes Copenhagen such a safe city is its low crime rate, currently at its lowest level in more than a decade. We focus greatly on early intervention with preventive initiatives. ‘Copenhagen is also characterised by great social cohesion and a relatively narrow wealth gap. It is a mixed city where both the cleaning assistant and the CEO meet each other at the local supermarket and have their kids in the same school.’Despite this, the lord mayor did concede that the city still has a problem dealing with ‘repeat youth offenders’. Commenting on ranking Copenhagen as their safest city, the Economist wrote: ‘Toronto and Copenhagen do noticeably better in the new environmental security pillar than do any of the top-three cities from earlier years.’Copenhagen is definitely a worthy overall leader and Toronto a well-deserving runner-up, but as much because of long-term success in making residents secure as from any particular improvements in the last two years.’  See the Economist’s 2021 safest cities.  1.
