How We Determined The Safest Of The Safe
Now that we have our set of cities, it’s time to rank them.
How did we do this? Using safety first, of course. And then, we ranked each U.S. city across a number of criteria from one to 50, with one being the best.
Next, we took the average rank across all criteria, with the city posting the highest overall score being crowned the winner of the title “Safest of the Safest U.S. City for 2019”.
The criteria we looked at were:
- Violent Crimes Per 100k residents
- Property Crimes Per 100k residents
Where did we get the numbers? We consulted the New FBI Crime Data.
After we pushed some buttons, pulled a lever or two, and cranked out the data, we determined the Safest City in the U.S.A. for 2019 is Grafton, West Virginia.
If your city or town isn’t among the top 10, head on down to the bottom of the post to see a detailed chart of the safest cities in each state that always have next year.
Otherwise, keep on reading to see the cities that make being the safest of the safe seem easy.
