The GPI indicators for Costa Rica is 3 out of 5 perceive criminality in society (1 very low, 5 very high) by EIU analysts. 1.0/5 on Intensity of internal conflict, 2.0/5 on violent demonstrations and violent crime, and 1/5 on Terrorism impact.

The country scores poorly, 4/5 on access to weapons. According to the IEP, civilian access to small arms are worryingly high.

Even Switzerland (ranked 5 out of 162) famously detached when it come to any external conflict, the IEP says it  loses a number of points on the overall index because of its proportionately huge rate of arms exports per 100,000 of the population.

The top 5 ranked are: Iceland (1), Denmark (2), Austria (3), New Zealand (4) and Switzerland (5).

The IEP says that for a country to score at the lowest level for all its indicators for conflict, it must not have been involved in any “contested incompatibility that concerns government and/or territory where the use of armed force between two parties, of which at least one is the government of a state, results in at least 25 battle-related deaths in a year”.

The Global Peace Index measures the latest data up to the end of the year before – meaning that the state of international conflict right now is actually even worse than the study suggests.
