The Violent Crime Index compares the 50 most populous cities in the United States by violent crime incidents per 100,000 residents in each city. The data covers offenses known to law enforcement as reported to the FBI as part of the Uniform Crime Reporting program. The offenses included are murder and non-negligent manslaughter, raper, robbery, and aggravated assault.
This leads us to the question of, “Where are you most likely to be a victim of violent crime in the United States?”
The infographic below visually represents data from the Violent Crime Index to provide valuable insight on the most violent and dangerous cities in the Unite States. We are happy to see that Los Angeles just missed the top 25 for most violent cities (we’re 26). See if your city is included in the lists below.
