And its unemployment rate continues to fall.

If you’re considering a move to North Carolina, we're sure that a safe area to relocate to is one of your top criteria. SafeWise, and independent source of crime and safety information, has paired the most recent FBI Crime Report with their own independent examination to bring us North Carolina’s top 50 safest cities to settle in.

To make their list, a city had to have a population of over 5,000 as of 2012 and needed to meet criteria regarding both violent and property crimes, according to FBI statistics from 2012. They analyzed the number of violent crimes as well as property crimes and calculated the chance of these crimes happening out of 1,000 in order to level the playing field for the different populations of each city.
