The Times has taken a stab at answering that question with the ranking of India’s worst cities in terms of crime rates and poverty.
Here’s what you need to know about these two cities.1.
The Crime RateIn order to get a feel for how much crime there is in a city, The Times used the Crime Severity Index (CSI) to calculate how many crimes per 100,000 inhabitants a city has.
The CPI measures the percentage of crimes against the population.
Here are the CPI numbers for Mumbai:2.
The Poverty RateWhile Mumbai is a city with a population of 811 million, it has the sixth highest poverty rate of all Indian cities.
Mumbai has the fifth lowest per capita GDP of all India cities, and it ranks second in the per capita income per capita (PPP) of the city.3.
The Rank in CrimeThe index includes all crimes and non-criminal offenses against people (as opposed to crimes and thefts) for the entire country.
Here is how Mumbai ranks:4.
The Per Capita Income (PPI)The CPI is a measure of how much a person makes per capita.
India ranks third on the PPI scale behind the United Kingdom and China.
