A new study takes a look at people's ratings of the safest and most dangerous places in the world.

The American research company Gallup asked people to tell about their experiences with crime and law enforcement. Gallup says its researchers carried out the study last year in a total of 142 countries and areas.

The researchers met with the individuals in person or spoke with them by telephone. People were asked these brief questions:
