Abu Dhabi has been named the safest city in the world by Numbeo, the largest user-contributed database about cities and countries worldwide.

With the lowest crime index of just 13.54 in the past six months, and a safety index of 86.46, Abu Dhabi came as number one on Numbeo, out of a list of 334 cities.

Cities were ranked according to their digital security, health security, infrastructure safety, and personal security - which was linked to their crime level and the level of police intervention.

Moreover, in July, Abu Dhabi was named the second-best city in the world to live, work and do business in, overtaking both London and Paris, in the most recent Ipsos City Index.
