The good news is, even with a sluggish economy, violent crime in the U.S. has gone down over the last four years.
The bad news is, Detroit logged 345 murders last year, helping to make it the most violent city in America, according to an analysis by Forbes.
The top 5 on the list are…
- Detroit, MI
- Memphis, TN
- Springfeild, IL
- Flint, MI
- Anchorage, AK
The magazine used data from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report to compile its list based on statistics from 2010.
Forbes looked at four categories of violent crimes, including murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault. The list was limited to metropolitan areas of at least 200,000 residents.
Check out the top five cities below and for the rest of the list, and for more detailed analysis of what may contribute to the higher rates of crime, see Forbes’ full article here.
If you’re still anxious for reasons to live in perpetual fear, Business Insider has a list of the 25 most dangerous cities also based on 2010 FBI data. The Atlantic compiles a list based on the same categories that Forbes uses except robbery.
