    There are many different factors that lead to a city becoming rather dangerous to live or work in, and measuring whether or not a city is safe can be a complicated affair. One popular way of quantifying safety is by examining the homicide rate of a city, which is measuring the number of citizens out of 100,000 who were victims of homicide. Please note, it is important to note that although the rates of homicide may be high in these cities, the United States continues to have a homicide rate that is relatively low, at 4.9 per 100,000 people.
