"The top-ranking cities tend to ... not only have low rates when it comes to crime, but offer financial safety as well," WalletHub analyst Jill Gonzalez said in a statement. "Safety is one of the most important factors that need to be considered when looking for a place to live. Cities that offer a safe environment for their residents do better in other aspects of living as well, such as education and health care."
