Vermont ranked as the safest state in America, followed by Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota and New Hampshire. Mississippi was found to be the least safest state, only behind Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Missouri.

Experts looked at five main factors: Personal and residential safety, financial safety, road safety, workplace safety and emergency preparedness. These five factors were composed of data sets made up of 37 key metrics, which included details such as assaults per capita, unemployment rates and climate disasters per capita.
