This indicator complements the other indicators of Target 16.1, which focus on the rate of intentional homicide (16.1.1), the rate of conflict-related deaths (16.1.2) and the proportion of the population subjected to physical, psychological, and sexual violence (16.1.3). It also relates to indicator 16.3.1, which refers to the proportion of victims of violence in the previous 12 months who reported their victimization to competent authorities. By providing a perception-based measure of safety in the local neighbourhood, indicator 16.1.4 provides a more holistic picture of people’s everyday experience of insecurity, crime and violence.
