    Default safety in DR according to social progress imperative

    diario libre reports that SPI ranks DR as one of the countries with the lowest personal safety index:
    República Dominicana, el séptimo país más inseguro en el Índice de Progreso Social - DiarioLibre.com

    original data here:
    Social Progress Index - Data - Social Progress Index - The Social Progress Imperative

    the tables are actually quite interesting, you can pick up the values to compare.

    I'm surprised by the high ranking for Czech Republic!

    On DR, everyday I find more reasons why this is not the country where I want my children to grow up.

    I'm surprised at how low the USA is on the index. The DR is a relatively new democracy with a long way to climb.

    I can't honestly believe that DR would be classified lower than many countries in Africa that are pledged with civil wars, terrorists and whatever else... Humm....

    On several aspects of the study I see the Dominican Republic getting worse instead of improving.

    I grew up at at time when it was very safe in upstate NY. One could leave the doors open. That changed as jobs left my city for other states and other countries while at the same time many immigrants (mostly from a US protectorate in the Caribbean) were coming in thinking there were still jobs to be had. Not enough jobs and poorly paying jobs had a lot to do with my town going into the dumper where it still is today. Much higher crime and houses not worth purchasing.

    Windguy,just a friendly reminder that this is "DR1",...not "Upstate NY1"!
    Non DR related posts, EXCEPT in the "Off Topic" forum, will be deleted.
