Safest Places to Live in Nebraska 2019

EPF Last Update: June 7, 2019

Located in the Great Plains and the Midwestern region of the United States, Nebraska borders South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming.

Home to slightly over 1.9 million people, it is the 37th most populous state in the US. The capital of Nebraska is Lincoln, while the largest city is Omaha, which lies on the Missouri River and is home to approximately 450,000 people.

Nebraska was a land of many Native American peoples prior to being admitted to the United States in 1867. An interesting fact is that the government of Nebraska is officially nonpartisan.

Climate is rather dynamic and can bring tornadoes and violent thunderstorms, but also milder and enjoyable periods. The landscape of Nebraska portrays a lot of treeless prairies, which creates excellent conditions for cattle growth. Nebraska is an important producer of beef, pork, corn, and soybeans.

In the period from 2016 to 2017, Nebraska saw an increase in the violent crime rate –  3.7%, which was 3.1% 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 Nebraska

In case your city didn’t make it to the top 10, you can take a look at our full list of Nebraska 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 narrowed the results according to population segments:

– 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:
