All charts are excerpts of Global Peace Index 2019 by the Institute for Economics and Peace.


It is said that the GPI covers 99.7 percent of the world’s population, using  23 qualitative and quantitative indicators from highly respected sources, and measures the state of peace using three thematic domains: the level of Societal Safety and Security; the extent of Ongoing Domestic and International Conflict; and the degree of Militarisation.


Would you consider moving to another country based on these figures?
