kansas city missouri highest crime
Crime index*: 2.13
Population: 461,456
Murder rate (per 100,000): 23.4

Overall, Kansas City's violent crime rate is the ninth highest among big cities.

Aggravated assaults were prominent among the city's police reports and unfortunately, so were murders. Kansas City reported 108 murders in 2011, up from 102 the year before. That gave it the dubious honor of ranking seventh highest among the nation's big cities in terms of homicide rate.


Source: CQ Press compiled this index using data reported by the Federal Bureau of Investigation's "Crime in the United States 2011."
*The crime index is a weighted average of six crime categories murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, and motor vehicle theft. The national rate is 1 and any number higher than that indicates a higher than average incidence of crime.
**List includes cities with populations of 250,000 or more.
