Yucatán state is considered the most peaceful region in Mexico. We all knew that.
But now the Index of Peace Mexico 2017 has come out and shows the state to be peaceful on a global scale. It ranks second for tranquility, up there with Iceland, Denmark and New Zealand.
A communiqué shared by the Directorate General of Social Communication was reported in Milenio on Wednesday.
According to the IPM, which bases its results on reported intentional homicides, gun-related or violent crimes, unjustified detentions and organized crime, Yucatán 1.239 on a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 reflects “absolute absence of violence or fear of violence;” and 5 is “an absence of peace and tranquility.”
