Safest Places to Live in New Hampshire ( 2018 Updated ! )

EPF Last Update: November 17, 2018

Located in the northeastern region of the United States, New Hampshire is one of the New England states. It is bordered by Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, the Atlantic Ocean, as well as the Canadian province of Quebec.

New Hampshire is the 5th smallest and the 10th least populous state in the United States, with over 1.33 million residents. The capital is Concord, whereas the largest city is Manchester, which has a population of approximately 110,000.

New Hampshire was one of the first colonies and one of the founder states of the US. Moreover, it was the first state to have its own constitution. Its nickname is the Granite State, referring to its abundant resources of granite. Snowy mountains are typical of New Hampshire, so some of the most common activities include skiing, snowmobiling, and other winter sports, as well as hiking and mountaineering.

It seems that the New England region is rather safe. New Hampshire is another state in this area which saw a decrease in the violent crime rate in the period from 2016 to 2017. At the state level, it stayed the same as the year before, but it decreased by 0.6% per 100,000 people.

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 New Hampshire

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