SafeHome.org looks at several different factors when assigning a Safety Score to a city, including the FBI’s latest report of how many and what types of crimes occurred in each city over a single year, the city’s crime trends, and the number of law enforcement officers compared to the population. Cities showing a decline in crime are given a higher Safety Score.
Demographic metrics that are commonly correlated to crime have a small impact on SafeHome.org’s Safety Score. These metrics include population density and trends, unemployment rate, median income, and education level.
