Shenzhen ranked 32nd out of 50 globally in The Economist's 2015 Safe Cities Index, which was released recently.

Shenzhen ranked 32nd out of 50 globally in The Economist's 2015 Safe Cities Index, which was released recently.

Among the 50 cities surveyed worldwide, no Chinese cities made it into the top 10 in the index, which looks at digital security, health security, infrastructure safety and personal safety.

The highest ranking Chinese city was Hong Kong (11), followed by Shanghai (30), Shenzhen, Tianjin (34), Beijing (37) and Guangzhou (38).

Tokyo was listed as the safest city in the index, ahead of Singapore (2) and Osaka (3). European capitals Stockholm (4) and Amsterdam (5) completed the top five.

Australia's most populous city, Sydney, came in sixth in the index, followed by Switzerland's Zurich, Toronto and Melbourne. Only one U.S. city made it into the top 10, New York City.

On the other end of the scale, Jakarta, with an urban population of over 10 million, ranked at the bottom of the list. Cities which also tipped the other end of the scale, from 45th to 49th, respectively, were Mexico City, Riyadh, Johannesburg, Ho Chi Minh City and Tehran.

However, being among the safest cities in the world doesn't necessarily equate to being the best city in which to live. Tokyo was ranked 16th in terms of the best place to live. Canada swept that category, with Toronto coming in at No. 1, followed by Montreal at No. 2. Hong Kong took 24th in this category.

European cities Stockholm and Amsterdam came in at third and fourth, with San Francisco rounding up the top five. Melbourne came in at sixth, with Sydney at ninth after Zurich and Washington, D.C. Chicago made it into the top 10 best places to live.
