Though these statistics are presented in descending order , it should be noted — particularly in light of the FBI’s own caution — that a region’s ranking does not provide a complete picture and drawing inferences based on ranking alone may prove misleading.
Violent crime rates, particularly when more narrowly reduced to particular locales, may provide an indication of foreseeability and assist in a property owner’s assessment of what safety precautions are reasonably needed to prevent injuries to people on its premises.
