Safest Places to Live in Texas ( 2017 Updated ! )

Latest Update:    October 30, 2017

 

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.

Nevertheless, Texas is no exception when it comes to crime, since it is on the increase in this state too. From 2014 to 2015, violent crime in Texas increased by only 3.2% or 1.4% per 100,000 people. However, from 2015 to 2016 it went up by 6.9% or 5.3% per every 100,000 residents.

 

Ranking Criteria

Elite Personal Finance extracted data from the FBI crime statistics in the United States in 2016. 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 population under 10,000.

Crime Score in All Cities in Texas

In case your city didn’t make it to top 50, 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 Elite Personal Finance made a detailed analysis and divided all places in Texas in 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:
