The Most Dangerous Place To Live

If you live in Chicago, then you probably have said to your self many times, “I need to move out of Chicago it is too much going on”. Well, before you pack your bags you may want to reconsider leaving at all, or maybe see where Chicago ranks in the “most dangerous place to live” category. The latest FBI list does not even put Chicago on the list.

 

Neighborhood Scout’s research reveals the 100 most dangerous cities in America with 25,000 or more people, based on the number of violent crimes per 1,000 residents. Violent crimes include murder, rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. Data used for this research are 1) the number of violent crimes reported to the FBI to have occurred in each city, and 2) the population of each city.

 

The gun violence in Chicago is very disturbing but the overall crime rate in Chicago does not make it into the top 100 Most Dangerous places to live given the population and number of violent crimes per 1000 residents.
