The Numbeo database has been publishing annual reports since 2009, based on the crime rates in the countries of 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.The report also takes into account the different types of crimes and their classification according to the laws on crimes, offences and violations. The indicators also depend on a set of standards related to the crime rate and violence such as murder, terrorism, the cost of crime and other standards.
