Most Dangerous Neighborhoods 2009

Why list the most dangerous neighborhoods in America rather than just sticking with the traditional city and state breakdown. Well the answer is relatively simple and makes all the sense in the world. Let's take for example my home town and 2008's most dangerous city! Even in New Orleans, last years most dangerous city in America, many areas or neighborhoods are very, very safe, while others average multiple murders nightly. So in my opinion listing the most dangerous neighborhoods rather than city is much more accurate. The data is brought to us by NeighborhoodScout.com who collects data from all 17,000 local law enforcement agencies in America, and uses a relational database to aggregate the statistics from each agency to the municipality that they protect. This provides an accurate representation of the total crimes and actual crime rates within any given city or town. The most dangerous neighborhoods are based on violent crimes from the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports and reflect the following: murder and manslaughter, rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. The findings are based on real data and used to predit the number of violent crimes in a neighborhood per 1,000 people. Not only is the data excellent for evaluating violent crime but could and should be utilized by government leaders, consumers and private business for a variety of reasons.
