World’s greatest worries and risks revealed in first ever global survey

10 October 2020

The Lloyd’s Register Foundation World Risk Poll, the first ever global study of worry and risk across the world, has been published  including the World Worry Index, data on safety and risk for 142 countries, and including new research on subjects such as risks faced by women, experience of serious injury and violence and harassment in the workplace, climate change, and online safety.

It shows that 24% of 150,000 people surveyed in 142 countries indicate lack of safety on roads as single largest threat in their daily lives, followed by crime or violence and health problems.

''The Lloyd’s Register Foundation World Risk Poll represents the views of 98 per cent of the world’s population on safety and risk, including many people whose voices have never been heard before. Knowing what people think will help us to identify gaps between peoples’ thoughts about risk and their experiences of threats to their safety. We can use this data to work with communities and empower people to take action most likely to reduce harm – that saves lives and helps them feel safe.''

Professor Richard Clegg, Chief Executive, Lloyd’s Register Foundation
