According to a recent study from WalletHub, some California cities aren’t regarded as safe.
The personal finance company compiled a list of the “Safest Cities in America” based on 42 safety metrics and cities from the Golden State performed poorly.
The study evaluated the factors and compiled them into three categories, home and community safety, natural disaster risk and financial safety, resulting in a 100-point graded scale.
Some metircs included the percentage of residents vaccinated against COVID-19, unemployment rates and the number of murders that occurred in the city during the study period.
The highest-ranked California city was Fremont, which earned the 17th spot.
Fremont, located in Alameda County in Northern California, earned an overall safety score of 79.98 out of 100.
