Safest Places to Live in Oklahoma 2021

ElitePersonalFinance
Last Update: January 21, 2021 Living

Located in the United States’ South Central region, the biggest part of  Oklahoma lies in the U.S. Interior Highlands, Great Plains, and Cross Timbers. One of Oklahoma’s nicknames is the Sooner State, which refers to when white settlers claimed the best land pieces before the state’s official opening.

Almost 4,000,000 people are living in Oklahoma, which makes it the 28th most populous state. The capital of Oklahoma is Oklahoma City, which has over 600,000 residents.

Ranking Criteria

ElitePersonalFinance extracted the latest data from the FBI crime statistics in the United States. We took violent crime as the main criteria. To get our score, we used this formula:

Crime Score = ( Total Number of Violent Crimes / Population ) * 1,000

This way, safer cities got the lowest score, and those that are more vulnerable to crimes got higher scores.

The cities that did not report crimes to the FBI and those with a population under 5,000 were not included in the list.

Crime Score in All Cities in Oklahoma 2021

In case your city didn’t make our list, you can take a look at our full list of cities in Oklahoma.

We can’t compare crime rates in small and large cities. That’s why ElitePersonalFinance made a detailed analysis and narrowed the results according to population segments:

  • Under 3,000 Residents
  • 3,000 – 10,000 Residents
  • 10,000 – 30,000 Residents
  • Over 30,000 Residents

(Other sites don’t include places with under 3,000 residents, but we included them.)

These are the results that we got:
