St. Louis is now ranked the most dangerous city in the United States.
I have enjoyed looking at work. Not sure if you are from St. Louis, but wanted you to know that this study is famously flawed (year after year) for not comparing apples to apples between cities and also not even including many cities (such as Chicago) in it’s data comparisons. The people of St. Louis have been unfairly stigmatized by this study more than once over the years and I am always disturbed when I see this misunderstanding spread over media. Thanks, keep up the good work!
Thanks for your comment! I am not from St Louis, but do agree that the “most dangerous city” assessments are unfair. I included it in the blog as a note on how the city is perceived and perhaps stigmatized. Accurate or not, being labeled “most dangerous city” will make development difficult.
If you know of any articles or editorials on the subject, I’d appreciate it if you passed them along!
