Gallup has published the Global Law and Order report since 2015. 

The Global Law and Order report helps countries measure their progress toward meeting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal focused on peace, justice and strong institutions.

Gallup’s annual Global Law and Order report allows world leaders to compare each country’s progress (including their own) toward reaching the United Nations’ goal of building a more peaceful and secure world.   

Results are based on nationally representative, probability-based samples among the adult populations, aged 15 and older, in 141 countries and territories throughout 2022.

The 2022 results are based on telephone or face-to-face surveys of approximately 1,000 or more respondents.  

For results based on the total sample of national adults, the margin of sampling error ranges from ±2.0 to ±5.5 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.
