Find out how your community fares in the fight against crime. This new edition of City Crime Rankings provides easy-to-understand crime comparisons for cities and metropolitan areas throughout the United States. Numbers, rates, and trends for total crime, violent crime, murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, property crime, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft are presented in both alphabetical and rank order for all metro areas and cities of 75,000 or more.

Also included are numbers and rates of police in cities. As Americans consistently rate the safety of their communities as a high priority, City Crime Rankings provides essential information in one comprehensive, user-friendly volume. The formula and methodology are discussed in a narrative chapter allowing researchers to cite statistics with context.
