With a crime rate of 60 per one thousand residents, Seattle has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes – from the smallest towns to the very largest cities. One’s chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime here is one in 17. Within Washington, more than 98% of the communities have a lower crime rate than Seattle.
Importantly, when you compare Seattle to other communities of similar population, then Seattle crime rate (violent and property crimes combined) is quite a bit higher than average. Regardless of how Seattle does relative to all communities in America of all sizes, when NeighborhoodScout compared it to communities of similar population size, its crime rate per thousand residents stands out as higher than most.
Now let us turn to take a look at how Seattle does for violent crimes specifically, and then how it does for property crimes. This is important because the overall crime rate can be further illuminated by understanding if violent crime or property crimes (or both) are the major contributors to the general rate of crime in Seattle.
