INEGI publishes the results of ENSU 2018

The National Institute of Statistics and Geography of Mexico (INEGI) published today the results of the 4th Quarter of 2018 for the National Urban Public Safety Survey (ENSU).

The ENSU is a quarterly survey aimed at obtaining nationally representative urban information on the population’s perception of public safety in their city. This is a unique survey in the world, since there is no other national exercise that monitors quarterly and in a representative manner the perception of insecurity and other related aspects.

Aimed at persons 18 years of age and older, the ENSU obtains information on the sensation of insecurity due to fear of crime (perception); social expectation about the trend of crime (perception); witnessing criminal or antisocial behavior (knowledge); changing routines due to fear of being a victim of crime (experiences); and opinion about the performance of the police, the Army and Navy (perception).

With this survey, INEGI aims to provide information to the general public on the feeling of insecurity in urban areas of the country, in order to give elements of public policy decision-making on prevention and security.
