The rankings of the Safest Cities in North Carolina is an annual listing done by Safe Wise, where they do an in depth analysis of all municipalities across the state that have a population of over 4,000 residents. For accuracy, the team of experts there uses the most recent FBI Crime Report each year to compile their listing. After pouring over the numbers, they look at two major categories and plug the numbers in to come up with the final rankings of the Safest Cities in North Carolina.

The categories used by the Safe Wise team in the comparison are first, the number in each town of violent crimes (aggravated assault, forcible rape, murder, and robbery) as well the overall number of property crimes (arson, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft). Once these are figured out, they then arrive at an overall ratio showing the chances out every 1,000 residents of each of these crimes possibly happening.
