US Peace Index Background


The 2012 United States Peace Index will include the first-ever ranking of metropolitan areas by peacefulness. The USPI provides a comprehensive measure of U.S. peacefulness, at the state and city level, and analysis of the socio-economic measures that are associated with peace.  The Index includes an analysis of the economic costs related to a lack of peace in the United States, and finds that a reduction in violence and crime would result in hundreds of billions of dollars, comprised of savings for government at the federal and state level and additional economic activity.


IEP is the non-partisan, independent research institute that annually produces the Global Peace Index. IEP is dedicated to promoting a better understanding of the social and economic factors that develop a more peaceful society. It achieves its goals by developing new conceptual frameworks to define peace; providing metrics for measuring peace; and uncovering the relationship between peace, business, and prosperity.
