The evaluation of my country origin Bangladesh capital Dhaka in your survey hardly can portray the real scenario of crime etc based on the opinions of 225 contributors.The country is an emerging Tiger in economic growth and legs behind many of it's neighbors in various indexes of development under current regime.Political stability dramatically pulling huge FDIs (Foreign Direct Investment).We're much optimistic about the current regime,who are sincerely trying to curve crimes in various sectors.Wish in the future your surveys on Bangladesh will be more inclusive.

I'd like to ask why your crime survey does not address the question of violence against women or even sexual harassment. Gender-based violence is huge for the city I was reporting on (Dhaka, Bangladesh) and the ability of women to protect themselves in such situations is low. Your survey asks about "Worries being subject to a physical attack because of your skin colour, ethnic origin or religion" and yet GENDER is not included? You are omitting the perception of half of us! What a shame!

If no one sees this in time its okay, I have now found information but please think about this for the future. Thanks
