The FBI’s most violent cities in each state

In January, the Mexico Citizens Council for Public Security released its annual ranking of the world’s cities with the highest homicide rates. Four US cities made the top-50 list.

Now, using data from the FBI for the first half of 2015, we have compiled a list of the most violent cities in 43 states around the country.

The data considers only cities that have a population above 100,000. Therefore, states without a city with a populations over 100,000 were excluded from the FBI’s data.

Using information from the FBI, we have compiled the violent crime rate of each city per 10,000 residents.

According to the FBI, violent crime includes rape, robbery, aggravated assault, and murder. The average US violent-crime rate was roughly 36.6 offenses per 10,000 people in 2014.
