Using the recently-released FBI data from here:

FBI Uniform Crime Report - Table 5 - Crime in the United States by state (http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2009/data/table_05.html - broken link)

along with other sources, this map shows murder rates by state, along with a few other areas for which recent data was available.



And to answer a question that came up in the past, I don't care if people repost this image elsewhere, or edit it, etc. It's free-use.

it looks like the murders settled towards the bottom

Also for Illinois if you strip out Chicago and E. St. Louis, you get:

Population: 10,039,400
Murders: 286
Rate: 2.8/100,000


Two places that are 22% of the state's population more than doubles the homicide rate for the entire state! Whoops!

Great map. Did not expect NH to be so safe, murder-wise.

Not fair to say just PG County. It's inside the beltway that is the problem. But most of everything outside of PG is pretty safe. Besides, PG has been decent the last couple years. Same with DC.
