Safest Places to Live in Georgia ( 2018 Updated ! )

EPF Last Update: November 17, 2018

Georgia is one of the oldest US states. It was named after King George II and was the last of the original 13 colonies. As a matter of fact, it was one of the most important states in American history, playing major roles in the 18th and 19th centuries. On one hand, it was one of the first states to ratify the Constitution, but on the other, it was one of the 7 Confederate states, and along with Virginia, the strongest exponent of Confederate ideals.

Today, Georgia is home to over 10,000,000 people. Its nicknames include the Empire State of the South and the Peach State. Agriculture and mining have traditionally been the most developed industry branches. However, Atlanta, the state’s capital, is becoming increasingly important for its economy, attracting important businesses and investors.

Georgia saw a drop in violent crime rates in 2017 compared to 2016. There was a 7.5% decrease in violent crime for that given period, which is 8.5% per 100,000 residents.

Ranking Criteria

Elite Personal Finance extracted data from the FBI crime statistics in the United States in 2017. 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 Georgia

In case your city didn’t make it to the top 30, you can take a look at our full list of Georgia cities.

It is obvious that we can’t compare crime rates in small and large cities. That’s why Elite Personal Finance made a detailed analysis and divided all places in Georgia into the following categories:

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

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

These are the results that we got:
