# 15 Most Dangerous Cities in America

Every year Mercer ( http://www.destinationtips.com/advice/15-dangerous-cities-united-states/ ), undertakes an exhaustive study of more than 450 cities. So here is Mercer’s list of American cities in 2017, with the lowest quality of life.

15. Honolulu, Hawaii
Home to a growing meth problem, where small time crime is relatively common.

14. New York City, New York
When you cram 8.5 million people together crime is bound to happen. Especially in certain sections of the city.

13. Seattle, Washington
There is an incredible amount of robbery and assault per capita; a result of the city’s meth problem.

12. Chicago, Illinois
The city’s epidemic of gun violence is fodder for Monday morning news reports every week.

11. Washington, D.C.
D.C.’s crime rate is more than three times the national median. Sexual assault occurs to nearly 1 in 1,000 people.

10. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Cases of rape, murder, and armed robbery are reported on an annual basis.

9. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Right behind Pittsburgh, Philadelphia still reports more than 450 crimes per square mile.

8. Los Angeles, California
Murder, armed robbery, and rape are so common that the odds of being a victim is one in 155.

7. Minneapolis, Minnesota
The odds of being a victim of a violent crime in the city is one in eighteen.

6. Dallas, Texas
Dallas has a fairly high crime rate, however, when compared to other cities of its size it’s actually much lower than most.

5. Atlanta, Georgia
In Atlanta, the probability of being the victim of burglary or theft is 1 in 17.

4. Houston, Texas
Rampant property crime and auto theft problems, trump the violence in the area.

3. Miami, Florida
The odds of some frankly crazy sh*t happening to you in Miami, are about 1 in 100.

2. St. Louis, Missouri
Racial tension that has clogged the city for decades. Its crime rate is four times higher than the national median.

1. Detroit, Michigan
Unsurprisingly, the lowest ranked US city on Mercer’s list was Detroit, where one out of every 2,000 people are murdered each year.

  1. St Louis is the most dangerous,not Detroit,D is a little bit improving over the years,murder rate is slowing down,but St.Louis murders are going only up.It’s in top 20 most dangerous cities in the world,but Detroit is out of top 20 in 2017.So,you something messed up,fix it.

  2. New York is a very safe city, it’s just that every city has bad neighborhoods and New York has a very low murder rate

  3. I live on long island NY we never make any of these lists thank god lol do enjoy these videos though it makes me grateful,.

  4. I’ve been to five of these cities: Honolulu, Los Angeles, live right outside of Philadelphia, been to Miami and D.C. All cities have great aspects and I did not feel in danger at all in them. Plus you didn’t even mention Camden, NJ or Stockton, CA.

  5. I live in St. Louis. I’m actually surprised that we aren’t ranked #1. I would stay away from the majority of the city, especially from the North City neighborhoods. Every time I watch the news or read the paper there’s always something bad going on in the city like shootings, especially this year. I would also stay away from certain parts of north county. Thankfully live in Webster Groves, which is in mid county.
