Apparently by 2007 NOLA hadn't regained enough population to be in 250,000+ range. It is the most dangerous city in the 100-249k group with over 1,500 violent crimes per 100,000 residents

Somehow you have Chicago in the wrong place. It's listed #55, but if you add up the stats it should be up at #44.

Just a random observation...

That list is pretty inaccurate.

Ive been studying crime rates in cities for a long time and I know the current rankings and these arent close to being right. Im not sure where you got these from.

Just one example, there is no way that Chicago is that far down on the list. It shouldnt be anywhere close to the worst on the list.

We're talking central cities, right?
