By learning which cities are dangerous, you can help discern the worst cities America has in a more general sense. For example, if crime is high, that indicates that people are desperate for money, which suggests that unemployment is high as well. If unemployment is high, then cities do not have a lot of tax revenue coming in, so there is likely to be less green space and parks. Less green space and parks means that property values will not be as high, so neighborhoods may have challenges keeping quality housing around.
Here are the top 10 most dangerous US cities:
1. St. Louis, Missouri.
2. Detroit, Michigan.
3. Flint, Michigan.
4. Compton, California.
5. Camden, New Jersey.
6. Birmingham, Alabama.
7. Cleveland, Ohio.
8. Oakland, California.
9. Youngstown, Ohio.
10. Gary, Indiana.
Interestingly, six of the ten worst cities America has (at least in terms of crime) can be found in the Midwest. In contrast, many of the safest U.S. cities are found on the east coast and the southwest. Economic trends travel differently through different areas of the nation, but the Midwest has a long history of major employment through industry (big factories) and small farms. As industry moves overseas and small farms are priced out by large agribusinesses, the Midwest sees significant job losses that contribute to crime levels in its cities.
How To Avoid The Worst U.S. Cities
If you’re planning to move to the United States and want to make sure you choose a good new home for yourself and your family, do some research about cities first. Compare housing prices to see how strong the economy is (cheaper housing is easier to buy but may indicate financial trouble). Ask friends or family who have already come over where to move in the U.S., based on their experience. Research online to see if a city’s population is growing or declining, as that may also indicate its health.
