The study used the most recent FBI crime report statistics from 2017, to look at violent crime which included rape, murder and robbery, and property crime which included burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft.

Of note, not one of the top 20 communities on the list reported a murder, and half of them did not have a single rape.

The report broke down crime numbers per 1,000 residents in each city.

The statewide averages on crime are as follows:

  • 3.60 violent crimes per 1,000 people
  • 29.63 property crimes per 1,000 people
