  • Texas

Four Texas cities—Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, and Austin—make the top 10 list of the worst cities for burglaries, even though Texas itself has fewer robberies per capita than the other states on our list. Additionally, Houston will have the most burglaries per year in the US in 2021, with 14,644 burglaries.

  • Nevada

With around 503.5 robberies per 100,000 people, Nevada is also a state that stands pretty high on the list of the most dangerous states in America. Although there is no doubt that Las Vegas has a high crime rate, it is not the state’s highest.

As opposed to Vegas, which has an overall crime rate of just under 40%, the small town of Elko, with a population of just over 20,000, has a rate exceeding 50%.

  1. There is no such thing as a safe State anymore, be vigilant and wary and cautious on the neighborhood that you are in and don’t obviously go to unsafe and unfamiliar place’s specially @ night

  2. Fortunately, the state in which I live is not on your list. However, when I got to the last page, I was dumbstruck: I was BORN in New Mexico! I never lived there, though, because soon after I was born my parents moved to California! That said, this article was one of the most interesting ones I’ve seen online, well worth the short reading-time! Thank you!

  3. Is it a coincidence that arizona texas and new mexico are all border states, And nevada is pretty close. Just Asking.
