US Crime Rate by States [Report 2021]

Criminal activities are a common factor in US citizen’s daily life. As a powerful and large nation, the US has high crime rates. The average crime rate may decrease significantly in the last 25 years; it is still 2,475 per 100,000 people. The crime rate is divided into two categories: Homicide rate and Firearms death rate.  The firearm death rate is much more than Homicide as there is no gun control. Because of this crime rate is still high.
