Peoria Named 14th Safest City in America

Post Date:12/06/2017 7:39 AM

Peoria was named 2017’s 14th Safest City in America in a recent study from WalletHub.com, a personal finance outlet. To determine where Americans can feel most protected against life’s hazards, including nonphysical forms of danger, WalletHub’s analysts compared more than 180 U.S. cities across 38 key metrics. The data set ranges from assaults per capita to unemployment rate to road quality.

Safety in Peoria (1=Safest, 91=Avg.):

  • 25th – Assaults per Capita
  • 22nd – Thefts per Capita
  • 34th - Uninsured Population
  • 14th – Poverty Rate
  • 20th - Job Security
  • 39th - Employment Growth
