Minnesota violent crime rate stands at 236.4 per 100,000 residents in new study



(The Center Square) – Violent crimes in Minnesota numbered 236.4 per every 100,000 residents of the state as of 2019, the 12th lowest rate among the 50 states, according to a new analysis from the website 24/7 Wall St.

The total number of murders in Minnesota in 2019 came in at 117, according to the 24/7 Wall St. analysis of FBI crime data, while the state’s poverty rate was estimated at 9%. The study’s authors pegged Minneapolis as the most dangerous city in the state.

Nationwide, the violent crime rate for 2019 was found to be 366.7 incidents per 100,000 Americans, according to 24/7 Wall St. The violent crimes tracked in the study were aggravated assaults, robberies, sexual assault and murders or non-negligent manslaughters.

The poorest states also tend to have the highest rates of violent incidents, the study’s authors concluded. New England states, which have relatively high incomes and less poverty, were among the safest in the nation, while many lower-income Southern states had the highest violent crime rates, the analysis found.

The most dangerous cities in Hawaii and Alabama could not be pinpointed due to a lack of municipal crime data in those states, according to 24/7 Wall St.
