Safest Places to Live in Texas 2020

EPF Last Update: March 12, 2020

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 and then losing it, being ruled by different nations, and always being the most autonomous state of all. It is very diverse when it comes to landscape, since 10% of the land area is desert, but there are also mountains, forests, rivers, grasslands, prairies, and coastline.

With over 27,000,000 residents, Texas is the second largest state both in terms of size (after Alaska) and population (after California), and this is, naturally, one of the main reasons for the dynamic lifestyle of many great and populous cities: Houston, Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, and El Paso. They offer fascinating opportunities to feel the uniqueness of this state’s people, culture and atmosphere.

From 2016 to 2017, Texas saw its violent crime rate go up by 2.6% or 1.2% per every 100,000 residents.

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 10,000.

Crime Score in All Cities in Texas 2020

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

It is obvious that 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:
