Safest Places to Live in Oklahoma 2020

EPF Last Update: June 7, 2020

Located in the South Central region of the United States, the biggest part of  Oklahoma lies in the U.S. Interior Highlands, Great Plains and Cross Timbers. One of the nicknames of Oklahoma is the Sooner State, which refers to the period when white settlers claimed the best pieces of land before the official opening of the state.

The landscape of Oklahoma is rather dynamic and includes mountain ranges, mesas, forests and prairie, which provides great conditions for agriculture. In fact, when it comes to cattle and wheat production, this state is among the best in the US.

There are almost 4,000,000 people living in Oklahoma, which makes it the 28th most populous state. The capital of Oklahoma is Oklahoma City, which has over 600,000 residents. Other important cities are Tulsa, Norman, and Broken Arrow.

Violent crime in Oklahoma increased by 0.4% (0.2% per 100,000 people) from 2016 to 2017.

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 3,000.

Crime Score in All Cities in Oklahoma 2020

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

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:
