A list of the top 100 most dangerous cities in America was recently compiled by the website neighborhoodscout.com, and 7 of the cities on the list were in Michigan.

Detroit was at number 3, and Flint made it to number 7.  However, also on the list was Kalamazoo at 39, and Battle Creek at 84.

The number is based on the amount of violent crime per 1000 residents, meaning that even though Lansing has around 1,200 violent crimes annually compared to Kalamazoo’s roughly 900, Lansing’s population makes it rank at 50.

The rankings were based on FBI violent crime data for cities.  Other Michigan Cities in the top 100 include Jackson at 79 and Saginaw at 8.
