World peace is an allusive ideal. We all want it, but we area almost totally sure we will never get it. Thanks to Knoema and the Institute for Economics and Peace, we can track how every country ranks on the peace index. The visualization below looks at “the level of safety and security in a society, the number of international and domestic conflicts, and the degree of militarization.”
While many of the OECD countries score highly on the index, The United States lags behind because of its increase in mass shootings, homicide rate, and terrorist attacks since 2016.
