Americans feel much safer walking on their streets than people in other countries

This data is from the International Crime Victimization Survey by the UN for 1989 to 2005 (click on pictures to make it bigger).  While the percent of people across all countries who feel threatened by burglary is 29 percent, in the US it is 16 percent, with only Denmark having a lower percent.  For people being threatened on the street, Americans apparently feel much less endangered walking around their neighborhoods than people in other countries by a 19 to 27 percent rate.  Interestingly, about twice as high or higher a percentage of people in Luxembourg, Greece, Bulgaria feel at risk.
