USN evaluated several factors including¬†both the violent crime rate and the property crime rate in each state, as measured by the FBI in 2015. When reviewing the rankings, you will notice the states with a larger population, in comparison to North Dakota ranked higher in crime. It’s a simple equation, the larger the population, the better chance of crime.

The safest states in the country are

  • Vermont (#1)
  • Maine
  • New Hampshire
  • Idaho
  • New Jersey

The most dangerous states are

  • New Mexico (#50)
  • Alaska
  • Louisiana
  • Nevada
  • Tennessee

North Dakota ranked at #12 due in large part to the oil boom and boom in population. In 2016, the states population was over 758,000 people in comparison in 2010 at about 674,000.
