Thursday, March 21, 2013

Costa Rica is the safest country in Latin America, according to a study by publisher-analyst, InfoLatAm.

The study positions Venezuela and Haiti as being the most violent countries in the region. Venezuela has seen a constant increase in its homicide rate, still the highest in Latin America after Honduras.

The ranking of 19 countries is based on data from public security departments, local police, governments, NGOs, and institutions responsible for crime investigation.
