Safest Places to Live in Texas of June 2024

ElitePersonalFinance
Last Update: March 11, 2023 Living

The ‘Lone Star State is one of the most beautiful US states. It is well-known for its southern hospitality and, of course, as you might have already supposed, cowboys. It has had a turbulent history, gaining independence, losing it, being ruled by different nations, and always being the most autonomous state.

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, safer cities got the lowest score, and those more vulnerable to crimes got higher scores.

The cities that did not report crimes to the FBI and those under 10,000 residents were not included in the list.

Crime Score in All Cities in Texas of June 2024

If your city didn’t make our list, you could see our full list of Texas cities.

We can’t compare crime rates in small and large cities. That’s why ElitePersonalFinance made a detailed analysis and divided all places in Texas into the following categories:

  • Under 3,000 Residents
  • 3,000 – 10,000 Residents
  • 10,000 – 30,000 Residents
  • 30,000 to 100,000 Residents
  • Over 100,000 Residents

(Other sites don’t include places with under 3,000 residents, but we included them.)

These are the results that we got:
