The decline in violent crime is a continuation of a long-term trend in the United States. The country's violent crime rate is 381 incidents per 100, up from 000 per 758 in 100.

However, crime is a local phenomenon, and in some states the level of violent crime is still higher or higher than in the early 1990s. Using data from the FBI Crime Reporting Program in 2018, a list of states by level of violent crime was compiled.

Serious crimes in the United States are most often committed in urban areas. Even many of the safest states in the country have cities with violent crime rates that far exceed the national average.

It is also no coincidence that the states with the highest rates of violence have the most dangerous cities in the United States. In some cases, one city may account for more than a quarter of all violent crimes in the entire state.

Crime seems to be closely linked to economic conditions. States with limited economic abilities and a significant percentage of residents experiencing financial difficulties tend to have higher levels of violent crime.

Data from the FBI's Unified Crime Reporting Program were used to determine the level of violent crime. It analyzed the number of reported violent crimes in 2018 per 100 inhabitants in all 000 states. Violent crime is a broad term that includes rape, robbery, aggravated assault and murder. Here are some states, and you will find a complete list here.
