Safest Places to Live in Illinois 2021

ElitePersonalFinance
Last Update: June 29, 2021 Living

Land of Lincoln is a Midwestern state, but it differs from its typical style.

With a close to 13 million population, it is the 5th most populous state in the United States. It is a microcosm of the country since it encompasses so many different economic fields. Agriculture is very developed, there are natural resources like coal, timber, and petroleum, Chicago is a cultural and economic giant, but Illinois is also an important transportation hub.

The capital of Illinois is Springfield, but the largest city is Chicago. Chicago has long been a major point of economic and cultural activities and one of the most important cities in the US. It has been attracting immigrants from Europe for a long time. Chicago is called the Windy City due to the strong air currents coming from Lake Michigan that Chicago faces.

As many as three presidents of the United States were elected while living in Illinois: the great Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, and Barrack Obama, whereas one president was born and raised in Illinois – Ronald Reagan.

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, safer cities got the lowest score, and those that are more vulnerable to crimes got higher scores.

The cities that did not report crimes to the FBI and those with a population under 10,000 were not included in the list.

Crime Score in All Cities in Illinois 2021

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

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:
