So, how did Numbeo conduct this research? They took a look at the Crime index, which is an estimation of the overall level of crime in a given city or country.
According to Time Out Doha, Numbeo’s rankings are based on surveys from residents living in those cities. Survey participants were asked questions like how
safe they feel walking at night, how worried they are about being robbed, and about the change in crime levels over the past 3 years.
