Are you living in a country with the most robberies? Or maybe visiting one?

Use the chart to find out! Maybe you can decide whether to leave that expensive laptop at home on your next vacation.

The above is an interactive chart of robbery rates across the world. The numbers presented are the robbery rates per 100,000 population as per police records.

Each bubble in the chart is sized by the total robbery rate of the constituent bubbles. Click through each bubble to see a detailed rate chart across the years.

Some surprises:

  • Why is Belgium so high (under Western Europe)? Also note that rates reduced drastically from 2009.

  • Maldives is the largest in Southern Asia? Such a small country too!
