Davao City: Safest City in the Philippines 2015

Davao City is one of the most progressive cities in the Philippines. As the most populous city in Mindanao and the 4th in the entire Philippines, Davao City is considered to be the safest city in the Philippines.

Numbeo, a database of user contributed data about the cities around the world, ranked Davao City as the 9th Safest City in the World.

If it is the 9th Safest City in the World, technically, it also means Davao City is the safest city in the Philippines.

According these data, Osaka Japan is the world’s safest city and Davao City being there in the 9th place, it is really something the Dabawenyos and the City Government of Davao be proud of!


As stated from the website, Crime Index is an estimation of overall level of crime in a given city or a country. We consider crime levels lower than 20 as very low, crime levels between 20 and 40 as being low, crime levels between 40 and 60 as being moderate, crime levels between 60 and 80 as being high and finally crime levels higher than 80 as being very high.

Safety index is, on the other way, quite opposite of crime index. If the city has a high safety index, it is considered very safe.


Crime Index and Safety Index columns simple means, if the crime index is low, there are just few criminal cases in the city. If Safety Index is high, it simply means the city is very safe to  live. The opposite data would imply an opposite answer stated above.

In the case of Davao City, it has 19.29 Crime Index which is quite low (meaning criminal cases are low) and 80.71 Safety Index which is really high (meaning this is a very safe city).
