Review quote

"Published annually since 2009, this comparative statistics guide now eschews subjective phrases such as 'safest' and 'most dangerous.' Replacing them is information on 'reported crime' as it relates to population, which shifts focus to the city's quantifiable criminal activity rather than offering judgmental assessments" -- Library Journal * Library Journal *show more
