Safest Places to Live in Connecticut 2020

EPF Last Update: March 6, 2020

Connecticut is situated in the northeastern part of the United States and it is one of the New England states. It is bordered by Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York. The state was named after the Connecticut River. It has many nicknames, including the Constitution State, the Nutmeg State, the Provisions State, and the Land of Steady Habits.

It was very important in the creating of the United States, as it was one of the original 13 colonies and very influential in the development of the United States federal government.

Connecticut is the 29th most populated state, being home to over 3,5 million people. However, combined with the fact that it is the 3rd smallest state by area, this makes it the 4th most densely populated state.

The capital of Connecticut is Hartford, while the largest city is Bridgeport (almost 150,000 residents). According to 2010 census, Connecticut is the state with the highest per-capita income, human development index and median household income. Its economy is very developed, which is a great invitation for all people considering to move to this state.

The violent crime rate increased by 0.1% (0.1% per 100,000 people as well) from 2016 to 2017, making Connecticut one of the safest states in the US.

Ranking Criteria

ElitePersonalFinance extracted the latest data from the FBI crime statistics in the United States. We took violent crime as the main criteria. To get our score, we used this formula:

Crime Score = ( Total Number of Violent Crimes / Population ) * 1,000

This way, cities that are the safest got the lowest score and those that are more vulnerable to crime got higher scores.

The cities that did not report crimes to the FBI were not included in the list, as well as cities with a population under 3,000.

Crime Score in All Cities in Connecticut 2020

In case your city didn’t make our list, you can take a look at our full list of Connecticut cities.

It is obvious that we can’t compare crime rates in small and large cities. That’s why ElitePersonalFinance made a detailed analysis and narrowed the results according to population segments:

  • Under 3,000 Residents
  • 3,000 – 10,000 Residents
  • 10,000 – 30,000 Residents
  • 30,000 – 100,000 Residents
  • Over 100,000 Residents

(Other sites don’t include places with under 3,000 residents, but we included them.)

These are the results that we got:
