Meanwhile, Canada ranked number fifth on the list, followed by Poland and Monaco

The least safe countries in the world for a woman in 2017 include Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, and Syria.

The rankings are based on the percentage of each nation’s female population that has been a victim of serious crimes over the past year.

With an estimated total wealth of $6.14 trillion, Australia ranked ninth on this list of the world’s wealthiest countries for 2017. According to this report, the United States was the wealthiest country in the world as the total wealth held in 2017 amounted to $64.58 trillion, followed by China at the second place with $24.8 trillion and Japan with $19.52.584 trillion at third.

“Woman safety is one of the best ways to gauge a nation’s long-term wealth growth potential, with a correlation of 92% between historic wealth growth and woman safety levels,” the report says. “This means that wealth growth is boosted by strong levels of woman safety in a country.”
