Yeah, I'm on the border of #2 on this list of largest metros (middlesex/somerset/hunterdon - my county isn't listed for some reason) and I'm not surprised - it's exceedingly safe here.

Yeah and supposedly the toughest gangsters come from the Northeast

I'm not surprised as well, those 3 are very safe.

Or it could mean that our crime isn't as spreadout as other regions. It could also be seasonal, in a sense too.

Some of those stats seem pretty inflated. For example, how does the hometown (St. Louis) have a rape rate of 122.8, which is twice as many as the second highest rape rate. Other observations are:

Dang, whole lotta auto thefts in the west coast, especially in the Southern California and Arizona area (six highest rates are West coast/Southwest cities). I wonder why that would be?

It seems that the South/Southeast has the highest burglary rates (8 of the 11 highest burglary rates are from areas east of Texas and south of Kentucky).

And 12 of the 16 highest assault rates are from areas east of the Mississippi River (Springfield, MA at #1 ).

Default boredatwork

The numbers dont lie but Im certain the D.C metro is more dangerous than the Baltimore Metro....Bmore city is surrounded by 1 county and has a rate of 36 per 100k with 232 homicides in the city last year...then in Baltimore county there was only 30 murders...D.C is surrounded by 3 counties in its metro area and had 181 murders for a rate of 31 per 100k in the city but Pg county had another 123 murders by itself....the other 2 counties had about 40 murders btw the both of them so it offsets the numbers I guess but the D.C area is more hectic outside the city limits for sure

Judging by later events apparently we can't.

What are the competitor sites you can't link to so I don't make a mistake in the future? Is Kiplinger's okay or verboten? Is ePodunk okay or no? Is there an FAQ on this?
