How safe do you feel living in Idaho? How safe do you feel living in the Treasure Valley? 

WalletHub recently released its report on the "Safest Cities in America," and the results are in! In a world where safety is paramount, this report is a valuable resource for anyone looking to relocate or gain peace of mind. The study analyzed data from over 180 cities, considering various factors to determine the safest places to call home. These factors included crime rates, emergency response times, the quality of healthcare, and the prevalence of natural disasters.

Where do you think Boise is on the list if you were to guess? 

Unsurprisingly, cities that consistently top the list tend to be smaller, with tight-knit communities where neighbors look out for one another. In this year's report, Columbia, Maryland, was ranked the best when it comes to home & community safety. 

Here are some stats that stood out. 

Irvine, California, has the fewest assaults per capita, St. Louis, Missouri, was tied for the most, but St. Louis has the 3rd fewest hate crimes per capita. Portland, Oregon, is tied 5th for the highest percentage of households with emergency savings.  

Idaho is celebrating a double win as two cities break into the top 30 on WalletHub's "Safest Cities in America in 2023" list. With low crime rates, strong community ties, and a focus on safety, it's no wonder these cities are gaining recognition. As people increasingly prioritize safety, these two cities are shining examples of what it means to provide a secure and welcoming environment.

In order to determine the safest cities in which to live, WalletHub compared 182 cities — including the 150 most populated U.S. cities, plus at least two of the most populated cities in each state — across three key dimensions: 1) Home & Community Safety, 2) Natural-Disaster Risk, and 3) Financial Safety.
