Mexico City, Mexico — According to Latinometrics, a specialist in data visualization and trends, Mexico City is safer than cities like Oklahoma, San Antonio, Dallas and Denver. According to their report, Oklahoma has a rate of 11.90 homicides per 100,000 inhabitants, San Antonio 11.60, Charlotte 11.10, Providence 11.07, while Mexico City reports 9.96 per 100,000 inhabitants.

The head of the Mexico City government, Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo, said that the security strategy implemented by her administration has yielded results, since according to the Latinometrics report, the city has reduced its homicide rate considerably since 2019.

The Latinometrics report reveals that in addition to Mexico City, other large cities in Latin America, such as Sao Paulo, are safer than Dallas and Denver.

“When compared to the most common measure of how safe a city is (homicides per 100,000 inhabitants), Miami actually ranks worse than Buenos Aires, São Paulo, Santiago and Mexico City,” the study indicates.
