According to data published by Eurostat on Wednesday, the share of people reporting crime, violence or vandalism in their neighbourhood varied across the EU member states in 2019.

While 11 per cent of the population of EU countries reported they faced such problems, the figure is 12.7 per cent for Cyprus

The highest shares were recorded in Bulgaria (20.2 per cent), Greece (16.9 per cent) and the Netherlands (16.3 per cent).

The lowest shares were observed in Croatia (2.7 per cent), Lithuania (3.2 per cent) and Poland (4.4 per cent).

The proportion has fallen each year in the EU since its peak in 2013 when it was 14.1 per cent.

“As might be expected, people living in cities reported these problems over three times more often than people in rural areas in 2019 (21.3 per cent vs. 6.9 per cent),” Eurostat commented.
