Turkey, Germany, and Japan were among the least criminal countries, ranking at 92nd, 100th, and 135th ranks.
Separately, World Population Review (WPR) yesterday ranked Afghanistan in the fourth spot on the list of countries with the highest crime rate in 2023.
It said that the country has the fourth-highest crime rate. more than 76 crimes are committed in Afghanistan for every 100,000 people.
The crimes have various forms including corruption, drug trafficking, kidnapping, and assassination.
Other forms of crimes could be robbery and assault due to the high unemployment rate in the country.
In the report, Venezuela, Papua New Guinea, and South Africa ranked 1st, 2nd, and 3rd with the highest crime rates.
The total number of crimes of any kind reported is divided by the total population, then multiplied by 100,000, which yields the overall crime rate (because the crime rate is typically reported as X number of crimes per 100,000 people).
