Opening the morning of this Thursday, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador emphasized that according to the recent Inegi Security Perception Survey, “the results are very good,” as the percentage of people who feel unsafe has decreased. “It’s the lowest it’s been in ten years.”
The president presented the results of the exercise, which reported that in December 2023, 59.1 percent of the adult population considered that, in terms of crime, living in their city was unsafe.
Although it is almost six out of ten, the results show that the number is 14.6 percentage points lower than that reported in December 2018 and there is also a decrease of 5.1 percent compared to December 2022.
According to the graph presented by the Chief Executive, the citizens’ perception of insecurity in December 2018 was 73.7 percent; while in December 2022, 64.2 percent of those surveyed declared that they felt unsafe in their city.
“There is good data, the Inegi survey on citizens’ perception of security just came out today, and the results are very good; people already feel that things are improving, according to that survey,” said López Obrador.
He also detailed that members of the security cabinet will travel this Thursday to Washington, where they will hold the usual meeting with their colleagues from the United States government, which will take place tomorrow.
The results of the survey also show that the Navy continues to be the security institution with the best acceptance by citizens, with 85.6 percent; the Army, with 83.5 percent; and the National Guard, with 74 percent.
“Very nice,” concluded López Obrador.
