The results of CQ Press's annual State Crime Rankings are in and, for some states, the results are reassuring. For nearly two decades, these rankings have shown how the 50 states compare against the national average for six crimes: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and motor vehicle theft.
1. New Hampshire
3. North Dakota
Interesting how 3 of the top 5 are in the most northeastern part of the country.
