Earlier this week, we reported on NeighborhoodScout’s new list of the top 100 safest cities in the U.S. In part two of this two-part series on crime, we’ll be counting down the top 100 “most dangerous” cities in America.

The group considered population and the rate of individual crime types per one thousand residents – including burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, murder, rape, armed robbery and aggravated assault – to determine its rankings.

For the fifth year in a row, East St. Louis was named the most dangerous city in America.

The Atlanta suburb of East Point ranked as Georgia’s most dangerous city, coming in at No. 22, while the city itself lagged only four spots behind at No. 26.
