Property crime is often associated with the nation’s biggest cities. A Social Explorer analysis of 2018 FBI data, however, found that the highest rates of property crime are in some of the poorest and most remote places in the nation. The Silver Bow-Butte, Mont., MSA, for example, recorded the highest property crime rate in the nation during 2018, with almost 5,300 burglaries, larcenies, or car thefts per 100,000 residents. It was followed by Anchorage (4,936); Juneau (4,827); Tunica, Miss. (4,465); and Washington, D.C. (4,270).
The nation’s biggest counties reported much lower figures, including Harris County, Texas (888), Los Angeles County (157), and Cook County, Ill. (21). Use Social Explorer’s award-winning online mapping tools to gauge the extent of property crime in your county.
