Posted at 8:37 AM, Apr 30, 2019

MILWAUKEE -- Due to crime, poverty, unemployment and other statistical factors, this Wisconsin city is the most dangerous in the state.

According to a 24/7 Wall Street study, Milwaukee is the most dangerous Wisconsin city.

Milwaukee had 2,900 reported cases of robbery in 2018. Milwaukee enhanced the state’s robbery rate alone to 490 incidents per 100,000 people, over five times the national robbery rate.

Milwaukee’s 1,597 incidents of violent crime per 100,000 people in 2017 was more than double that of any other city in Wisconsin.

In addition, the poverty rank is at 27.4%.

To identify the most dangerous city in each state, 24/7 Wall St. examined the FBI’s 2017 Uniform Crime Report for all U.S. cities with populations of 20,000 or more.

This includes stats on murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, property crimes and more.
