Safest Places to Live in North Dakota 2019

EPF Last Update: June 7, 2019

Located in the Midwestern region of the United States, North Dakota is bordered by Montana, its sister South Dakota, Minnesota and also Canada. It is one of the northernmost states in the contiguous part of the country.

It is the 4th least populous state, with slightly under 780,000 residents. The capital of the state is Bismarck, while the largest city is Fargo, which is home to around 120,000 people.

North Dakota was admitted into the Union in 1889. In the 21st century, it saw a great economic development mainly thanks to oil extraction. This state is sparsely populated, but one thing that its residents enjoy most is amazing sun dogs that can be seen during the long and cold winter.

There was a significant increase in the violent crime rate in North Dakota in the period from 2016 to 2017. The crime level dropped by 11.5%, which is 11.6% 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 1,000.

Crime Score in All Cities in North Dakota

In case your city didn’t make it to the top 20, you can take a look at our full list of North Dakota 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:
