Memphis has made the news twice for in this report. Memphis is ranked 12th and 19th among the National 25 most dangerous neighborhoods. For the second year in a row, using exclusive data developed by Dr. Andrew Schiller’s team at NeighborhoodScout.com, and based on FBI data from all 17,000 local law enforcement agencies, WalletPop reveals the top 25 most dangerous neighborhoods with the highest predicted rates of violent crime in America.

“Sou Memfis,” yeah over there by South Gate, Riverview, Flordia and S. Parkway, Flordia and Beltz, Fay and Kansas, Kansas and S. Parkway, SWIFT! hell….the dame HOOD! Well you made it 12th. I’m sure they are walking proud, with their pants “hangin lo.”  I don’t know what the hell you call the Danny Thomas area. “Them be some crazy Mutha Fuc#$@$,” down there. This is where they kick your ass out of jail (201 popular) and you walk to the homeless shelter at the corner, Danny Thomas and Popular, and hang out at the KFC and Exxon. The crime comes from when a victim of crime waits for the suspect to be released, then they kick his/her ass. See, we don’t keep people in jail, they’re out in three hours. Did I mention, it’s not to far from The PLUSH CLUB, Beale Street’s Nightmare

This year, Chicago took the not-so coveted top spot from Cincinnati for the most dangerous neighborhood, while Atlanta has the highest number of neighborhoods making the list (four).

You may ask, why neighborhoods and not cities? Schiller explains that even the cities with the highest crime rates can have relatively safe neighborhoods, and thus it is less useful to generalize about an entire city.

NeighborhoodScout’s Methodology:
Exclusive Neighborhood Crime Information

Location, Inc. offers the most detailed national database of neighborhood crime statistics available today. If neighborhood safety is important to you in selecting your next home, we provide the exclusive information you need for informed decisions.

Most city and town crime data are incomplete and inaccurate because crimes are reported by individual law enforcement agencies (municipal, university, county, etc.), rather than by city or town, and many cities have more than one agency responsible for law enforcement. Even FBI data are reported by agency not by city or town.

But Location, Inc. collects data from all 17,000 local law enforcement agencies in America, and uses a special approach to assign reported crimes from each agency to the city or town where they occurred. Our method provides an accurate representation of the complete number and types of crimes that truly occur within any city or town.

With this accurate foundation, Location, Inc. uses more than eighteen proprietary computer models developed by its expert analysts to statistically estimate the number of violent crimes and property crimes for every neighborhood in the U.S. — creating a national database of accurate neighborhood crime statistics and crime risk.

The neighborhood data is based on the aggregate crime data for the municipality containing that neighborhood for the most recent year of non-preliminary (final) data available from the FBI. It is important to note that very recent changes in a neighborhood may not be reflected in our findings, as we use non-preliminary data in our models that take a year to be released.

Our crime data cover every one of the 61,000 neighborhoods in America (sub zip code), and every one of the 14,464 cities, towns, villages, boroughs, and hamlets in the U.S. No piece of land in America is without detailed crime statistics.

Why neighborhoods and not cities? Even the cities with the highest crime rates in America can have relatively safe neighborhoods, and thus it is less useful to generalize about an entire city. But using exclusive data developed by Location, Inc., and based on FBI data from all 17,000 local law enforcement agencies, we here report those specific neighborhoods in America that have the highest predicted rates of violent crime of all.

Violent crimes included are the violent crimes from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports: murder and non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. Based on the most recent non-preliminary national data available, and predicted to the individual neighborhood level by NeighborhoodScout’s exclusive crime models, we list the top 25 most dangerous. The rating is based on the predicted number of violent crimes in the neighborhood per 1,000 population of the neighborhood.

Key Proprietary Crime Data Points at the Neighborhood-Level

  • Number of Motor Vehicles Stolen in every neighborhood
  • Motor Vehicle Theft Risk for every neighborhood
  • Number of violent crimes in each neighborhood
  • Number of violent crimes per 1,000 neighborhood population
  • A neighborhood resident’s chance of becoming a victim of violent crime (e.g., 1 in 24)
  • Number of property crimes in each neighborhood
  • Number of property crimes per 1,000 neighborhood population
  • A neighborhood resident’s chance of becoming a victim of property crime (e.g., 1 in 9)
  • Total number of crimes in each neighborhood
  • Total number of crimes per 1,000 neighborhood population
  • Neighborhood Crime Index (overall Crime Safety rating, nationally comparable)
  • Neighborhood Violent Crime Index (Violent Crime Safety Rating, nationally comparable)
  • Neighborhood Property Crime Index (Property Crime Safety Rating, nationally comparable)
  • Total Crimes per Sq. Mile within each neighborhood
  • Violent Crimes per Sq. Mile within each neighborhood
  • Property Crimes per Sq/ Mile within each neighborhood
  • Comparable city-wide and state-wide crime data and indices, to complement and compare to neighborhood-specific data
