Page 1 of 2

What are the most dangerous places to live in America? Security has always been an important issue and unfortunately things are getting worse even in the most developed places. The FBI compiles a giant collection of data on crime in America each year. We’ve listed the top 25 most dangerous places to live in America based on the number of violent crimes per 100,000 people reported for each city. We only considered violent crimes that include murder, forcible rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault for the ranking. Data used for this research are only the number of violent crimes reported to the FBI that in each city, and the population of each city. While we discuss about the top 25 most dangerous places to live in America, you can also have a look into our previous cover story on this topic, Most Dangerous Cities in America. We also published the list of 25 most dangerous cities in the World to visit.
