FBI data reveals some of the most violent cities in nearly every state

Daniel Brown, Andy Kiersz, Apr 14, 2018, 11:24 PM

The FBI recently released crime statistics that the agency compiled from US cities with a population over 100,000 between January 2017 to June 2017.
Among the data was the number of violent crimes committed in these cities, including murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. We then took these violent crime rates per 10,000 people to rank the most violent city in each state.
However, there are multiple cities, sometimes even whole states Ė such as Texas Ė that didnít report its data. There are also some states, such as Wyoming, that donít have cities with more than 100,000 people. Therefore the list is not complete.

Baltimore, Maryland (#1), at 98.6 violent crimes per 10,000 residents is still less than a 1% chance of being a victim of violent crime.
Not that I like those odds, but that is the worst city.
Have any cities on the list had a mass shooting at a school?

Several non-surprises on that list.

I noticed it said 'per resident', so are they including crimes against non-residents also? Places like Hawaii have part time residents, so do two part time residents equal one full time resident?

Question Re: FBI data reveals some of the most violent cities in nearly every state

https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s...iminary-report

Why didn't that show this from the FBI Website:
Quote:
Caution against ranking

Figures used in this Report were submitted voluntarily by law enforcement agencies throughout the country. Individuals using these tabulations are cautioned against drawing conclusions by making direct comparisons between cities. Comparisons lead to simplistic and/or incomplete analyses that often create misleading perceptions adversely affecting communities and their residents. Valid assessments are possible only with careful study and analysis of the range of unique conditions affecting each local law enforcement jurisdiction. It is important to remember that crime is a social problem and, therefore, a concern of the entire community. In addition, the efforts of law enforcement are limited to factors within its control. The data user is, therefore, cautioned against comparing statistical data of individual agencies. Further information on this topic can be obtained in Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics: Their Proper Use.
