The Safest Cities report was compiled using a statistical calculation of every city’s latest violent crime rate, property crime rate, and number of law enforcement officers employed. A total of 2,929 cities were analyzed in the report, filtering out any cities with populations of under 10,000.

Furthermore, all crime rates were analyzed on a per-capita basis (i.e., per 1,000 inhabitants). Lastly, the data used in this report is a combination of information found in the FBI’s UCR program, as well as corresponding Census data.
