In order to be included in the 14th Annual Safest City and Safest Metropolitan Area Award

rankings, cities and metro areas must report data for six crime categories: murder, rape, robbery,

aggravated assault, burglary, and motor vehicle theft. Complete crime information for 2006 was

not available for a number of cities and metropolitan areas. These details are outlined below...

...Aggravated assault statistics were not reported

for Barnstable Town, MA; Springfield, MA; Worcester, MA; Charlotte-Gastonia-Concord, NC-SC;

Jacksonville, FL; and Savannah, GA.

The same study, however, revealed that Charlotte is the nation's 50th most dangerous city. (See here)
