When it comes to the safest cities in the United States, Bismarck and Fargo rank among the top 30 communities.
That’s according to a data survey by personal financial website WalletHub.
WalletHub compared more than 180 cities across 44 key indicators of safety using data ranging from COVID-19 deaths in the past week per capita and assaults per capita to the unemployment rate and road quality.
When the numbers were crunched, Bismarck ranked #30 on the list. Fargo came in at #29.
Columbia, Maryland took the top spot as the safest city in the nation.
In addition to worrying about physical safety, a recent Gallup Poll suggested Americans are most worried about their health; that is, being safe from COVID-19. Only 38 percent of those surveyed felt confident they can protect themselves from COVID-19, down from 51 percent in May.
