The presence of crime in both urban and rural communities can make people feel unsafe and fearful, often precluding them from full engagement in their communities.
Perhaps more influential than the actual incidence of crime we can verify is the perception of crime, the belief that you are not fully safe in your surroundings.

The Uniform Crime Rate (UCR) is a composite measure of seven offenses selected for their seriousness, frequency of occurrence, and likelihood of being reported to police. The Uniform Crime Rate (UCR) is defined by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (local definitions of specific crimes and rates often vary) and allows comparisons over time and between areas, but should not be used to rank areas.
Data Limitations: Local jurisdictions often report local crime rates using different standards and definitions than reported under the UCR.
