Other SafeWise findings
Ohio has higher levels of concern about safety than most of the United States—despite lower crime rates. The state’s safest cities of 2020 exemplify why many residents of the Buckeye State should feel safer than they do.
With 56% reporting high concern about their safety on a daily basis, Ohio comes in 10 points above the national average of 46% compared to other states in our State of Safety Survey 2020. Ohio respondents also reported higher personal experiences with crime, which could explain why concern is so high.
