Philippines lags in new Safety Perceptions Index

The Philippines lagged behind its East and Southeast Asia peers after placing 128th out of 141 countries in the inaugural Safety Perceptions Index (SPI). The index, produced by think tank Institute for Economics and Peace using data from the Lloyd’s Register Foundation’s World Risk Poll, ranked countries based on the respondents’ levels of worry, likelihood, and experience of risk across five domains: health, personal, violence, environment, and workplace. In a scale between 0 (no risk, no concerns about safety) to 1 (high risk, high concerns about safety), the Philippines got an overall SPI score of 0.37. It was also above the global average SPI score of 0.22.
