I think everyone is aware that Japan is a safe country, and that Brazil is a very dangerous country. How can we understand this through data and statistics? In this article I will share some comparisons and statistics from Japan, Brazil and sometimes the United States which is quite influential in both countries.
The data in this article is taken from a survey carried out by the website NationMaster responsible for doing country-specific surveys and statistics. Let's start!
Most of the figures cited in the article are proportional to the population, most often calculated per 100,000 inhabitants. Try not to take the data in this article as absolute, as these searches are never exact.
Data related to Violence in Japan, Brazil and the USA
In Brazil the minimum age to be responsible for crimes is 18, in Japan it is 12 and in the United States it is 6. The increase in crime in Brazil was 74 in the last 3 years, 57% more than in Japan.
Japan ranks 129th in crime growth, Brazil ranks 13th, and the United States ranks 45th. In terms of crime, Brazil is 6x more dangerous than Japan, while the US is 4x more dangerous.
Drug use in Brazil is 26 times higher than drug use in Japan. In the United States, drug use is 6x higher.
In Japan the homicide rate is 1 person per 100,000 inhabitants, in the USA it is 5 and in Brazil it is 22. 87% of the Japanese population feel safe walking alone on the street, while in Brazil only 14%. Intentional and violent crimes in Brazil are usually 80x higher than in Japan.
The number of rapes recorded by the police in Japan is 1 per 100,000 inhabitants, in the USA this number is 27 times higher. Brazil does not usually disclose rape-related data, but the number is believed to be at least 100x higher.
Health related statistics from Japan, Brazil and USA
In Japan there are 14 hospital beds for every 1,000, while in Brazil there are only 2 and in the US there are 3. The infant mortality rate in Brazil is 8 times higher than in Japan, with 21 deaths per 1000 births.
As much as medical care in Japan is criticized by foreigners, Japan ranks 1st in several health categories such as speed, cost and quality of health. Do not ask me why…
The curious thing to mention about this ranking is that Japan, even without public health, seems to spend 2x less on private expenses than Brazil, where health care is free.
- Deaths from HIV is 30x higher in Brazil;
- Obesity in Brazil is 4x higher;
- In Brazil, 118x more children live with AIDS than Japan;
- Life expectancy in Japan is 33% higher than in Brazil;
- In Brazil, 15 are born for every 1000 inhabitants, twice as many as in Japan;
Other statistics from Japan compared to Brazil
Brazil is about 23x bigger than Japan.
Japan's income is 9x higher than Brazil's, where GDP is 4x higher. Japan ranks 24th in the best life course position, while Brazil ranks 84th.
- In Brazil there are 789x (3.25 million) more children out of school than in Japan;
- Japan consumes 4x more energy than Brazil;
- 75 out of 100 people are Internet users in Japan (Brazil 37);
Of course, these are not the only data presented to compare Japan with Brazil and other countries. I recommend doing a deeper search on NationMaster, as there are more than 7000 research data to buy.
Brazil must have come out ahead in many categories, I just selected the ones I found most interesting to readers. Hope you enjoyed the article! Some data related to cost of living and others, I preferred to leave it with the articles below:
