Top 100 Safest Places to Live In America - 2023

Feeling safe and secure where you live is a necessity to successfully build a new life in a new location. Dwellics’ PhD-level data scientists analyzed more than 60,000 U.S. cities, counties, towns, and neighborhoods within large metro areas to compile a list of the Top 100 Safest Cities in the U.S. in 2023.

This Top 100 Safest Cities list measures peace of mind by analyzing factors related to public health and well-being, including rates of smoking and substance abuse, quality of the air and water, incidence of cancer, life expectancy, and mortality rates. Not all the locales on this list are incorporated cities – some are county areas, unincorporated towns, or geographically distinct neighborhoods within large metro areas.

Other factors included in each city’s listing are average rent and mortgage prices; taxes; median income; weather and air quality; public safety (propensity for natural disasters); infrastructure (public transportation, traffic, and internet speeds); and community demographics like population size, age, racial and religious diversity, political affiliation, and industry and employment data that indicates the types of jobs available in each individual city. Dwellics also posts reviews of each city submitted by users who provide pros and cons of living in each place in their own words.
