I haven't seen this posted on the California forum yet.

Sunnyvale was ranked # 27 nationally & ahead of Glendale on down. Interesting that Chicago wasn't included & that Minneapolis has such a high crime rate.

Chicago was not included because the data definition it used for forcible rate did not meet the FBI standard.

I was glad to see the improvements happening in Fresno reflected in its rating being between Portland and Omaha.

I agree, I like areas in Oakland like Montclair. Unfortunately its not as well known as the problems in other parts of Oakland.

Too often people let the media influence their opinions of an entire city, whether they live there or not.
