The most dangerous cities in the U.S. have been listed for 2020. These rankings are based on violent crime statistics and other factors in order to determine which cities are the most dangerous in America. We will also be providing tips at the end of this blog about how to stay safe if you do happen to live in one of these cities.
This list was developed by NeighborhoodScout® and is provided by location, total crimes per 1,000 residents, chance of being a victim of a violent crime, and number of property crimes per 1,000 residents. The list starts with the city with the highest number of crimes and ends with the city that has the lowest amount of crimes per 1,000 residents.
Here is the top 10 list:
1 – St Louis MO – 2,083
2 – Detroit MI – 1,965
3 – Memphis TN – 1,783
4 – Baltimore MD – 1,722
5 – Pueblo CO – 1,658
6 – Cleveland OH-1,657
7- Stockton CA – 1,645
8- Milwaukee WI – 1,628
9- Spokane WA – 1,612

We all know how dangerous this country is. I mean, we see it on the news every day. Things are getting worse and worse and it seems like there’s nothing we can do about it. We’re not going to stand around and let things get out of hand anymore.
With that in mind, we decided to start a blog telling you where the most dangerous cities are so you know what to avoid. You can’t just go out and visit any city without thinking about how safe it is first. There’s too much danger out there in the world for you to act like a child!
To start off, here are some of the most dangerous cities in America: Washington DC, Detroit MI, Miami FL, Baltimore MD, San Francisco CA and Los Angeles CA. Be sure that you stay safe in these areas!
In a previous article, I discussed about how violent crime has fallen over the past few decades in America. However, this does not mean that crime is nowhere to be seen. According to FBI data, there were still 1.2 million violent crimes in the U.S. in 2016.
With an estimated population of 323 million, this means that there are around 372 violent crimes per 100,000 people. Of course, these crimes are not evenly distributed throughout the country; some places have crime rates that are much higher than the national average. Here is a list of cities with the highest violent crime rates, along with some common sense steps you can take to keep yourself safe:
The majority of violent crimes in America take place in urban areas. Based on a report from the US Bureau of Justice Statistics, nearly half of the violent crimes committed in the United States happens in big cities.
Despite significant crime-rate decreases during the past two decades, America’s largest cities are still deemed to be the most dangerous because of their high population density and poverty rate, which makes them more susceptible to a variety of crimes.
In this article, I will be looking at carefully selected statistics from various sources that will help you understand the current state of violence in our major cities and how they fare against each other.
The Dangerous Cities Report is based on three factors: Number of murders per 100,000 residents; number of rapes per 100,000 residents; and number of robberies per 100,000 residents. The UCR (Uniform Crime Reporting) is used as a source for violent crime data.
Violent crimes—murder, rape, robbery, and assault—are down across the country, according to newly released FBI numbers. Overall, violent crime dropped by 5.1 percent in 2018 compared with 2017.
That’s an improvement over recent years. In 2014, violent crime fell only 0.2 percent; it crept up 1.2 percent in 2015 and 3.4 percent in 2016 (the last year for which we have full-year data). Crime fell 1.8 percent in 2017, but that was still lower than the previous year’s decline.
The new data suggest that a changing dynamic is taking hold: Crime is going down at a greater rate than it has in recent years—at least in some cities. [See below for a list of the most dangerous cities.]
By far the sharpest drop was seen in Baltimore, where homicides dropped from 342 to 309 between 2017 and 2018, a 9.9 percent decline. Violent crime overall fell by 17 percent in the city last year; property crime dropped by 7 percent over the same year-long period.
Baltimore’s homicide rate is still the second-highest among big cities—with 56 killings per 100,000 people—but its murder rate has fallen steadily since
Violence is unfortunately a common problem in the United States. More than 14,000 homicides occur in America annually.
The country is divided into cities that are deemed safe and those that are considered to be dangerous. Each year, the FBI releases a crime report that ranks major cities based on their violent crimes per capita, which include murder and manslaughter, rape, robbery and aggravated assault. The numbers are then used to create a crime index for each city, with 100 representing the national average for safety.
Violent crimes in New York City have decreased by more than 85 percent since 1993, making it among the safest large cities in America. In fact, New York City has more murders annually than any other city in America but still has one of the lowest crime rates overall of all U.S. cities because its population is so big.
Chicago’s population is almost four times smaller than New York City’s but Chicago had nearly double the number of murders in 2016 compared to New York City. However, Chicago only had 3 murders per 100,000 people which is less than half of St. Louis’ murder rate of 7 per 100,000 people.
According to the FBI’s 2016 Uniform Crime Report, these 10 major American cities have some of the highest violent crime rates in
It’s the height of football season, and the NFL is celebrating its 100th anniversary. In those 100 years, football has risen from a scrappy underdog with a tiny audience to America’s most popular sport.
But it hasn’t been an easy road for the National Football League. It had to overcome its early association with gambling and corruption. It had to battle upstart leagues like the AFL and USFL. And it had to fight off concerns about player safety, a battle that continues today.
We’re taking you back through the history of the NFL, highlighting some of its greatest triumphs – and some of its biggest controversies.
