The study determined the most robbed cities in each state for 2017 by compiling robbery rates from the FBI’s crime data, which includes home robberies as well as incidents on the street, at a bank, or in a store.

The FBI defines a robbery as “taking or attempting to take anything of value from the care, custody, or control of a person or persons by force or threat of force or violence and/or putting the victim in fear.”
