Though crime can be found in all major cities, the severity and frequency of it vary greatly from metro to metro, as two new reports from real estate analytics provider NeighborhoodScout recently pointed out. In part one of this two-part series on those crime numbers, we’ll be counting down the top 100 “safest” cities in America.

The group considers population and the rate of individual crime types per one thousand residents – including burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, murder, rape, armed robbery and aggravated assault – for its rankings.

For the third year in a row, Ridgefield, Conn., was named the safest city in America.

Chicago proper made neither the safest nor most dangerous cities lists. However, the surrounding area was well represented, with 16 suburbs being named among America’s safest cities.

Illinois’ safest city was the suburb of Bartlett, which came in at No. 8. It was followed closely in the rankings by Buffalo Grove at No. 18 and Wheaton at No. 21. Of the 16 suburbs named, seven made top 50 appearances.
