Safest Places to Live in New Jersey 2020

EPF Last Update: June 7, 2020

New Jersey is located on the East Coast, in the Northeastern part of the United States. It is a peninsula bordering New York State and Pennsylvania.

An interesting fact is that New Jersey is the 4th smallest state but also the most densely populated state in the US, as it has close to 9 million residents. Major cities are Newark, Jersey City, Paterson, and Elizabeth. However, the entire state lies within combined statistical areas of New York City and Philadelphia.

New Jersey has traditionally been a major industrial point of the US. In addition, it was a place of some very important battles during the American Revolutionary War in the 18th century, such as the Battle of Princeton, where the legendary George Washington rallied his troops. At the moment, New Jersey is the third wealthiest state by median household income.

On top of all that, New Jersey is a really safe state. Violent crime rate decreased by 5.7% from 2016 to 2017, which is a 6.0% drop per 100,000 people.

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 5,000.

Crime Score in All Cities in New Jersey 2020

In case your city didn’t make our list, you can take a look at our full list of New Jersey 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
  • 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:
