Hopewell Virginia Restaurants

Just like our other Big Deal lists, this one begins with the 2010 US Census, which found the top ten safest places to live in the state of Virginia. The Movoto Real Estate Blog has already released a list of 10 safe places in this state, but now we look at some of the best restaurants in Hopewell, Virginia, and other parts of West Virginia.

We weighted murder, violent crime and property crimes to identify 30 percent of the total, with 10 percent representing the total number of crimes and 10 percent representing the total number of crimes. Finally, we ranked each location to a total score for Big Deal, with the lowest score going to the most dangerous place.

After eliminating places that did not report crime data to the bureau, we were left with 37 places to look at, with an overall score of 1.5.

The only difference is that Norfolk ranks higher in violent crime, Portsmouth is the second place in this category, and Portsmouth is the only place in the state with lower violent crime than Norfolk. As small as it sounds, that's a lot when you consider the high rate of violent crime. Of the 37 places we looked at, 16 were murders, the highest percentage being murder. Combine that with the fact that each of these crimes involved a crime, and the total number of crimes per person is about twice as high as it can be.

If you are thinking of swapping Portsmouth for Roanoke, although it is a little lower down the list, be aware that the likelihood of being a victim of crime is as high (1 in 18) as being a victim of crime. Overall, Portsmouth residents are twice as likely to be victims of crime as those in other parts of the state due to the high number of property crimes, and it also has the second highest violent crime rate of any Virginia city. So if you've found the perfect place at the perfect price in what seems like the right place, but your city is dangerous, you might want to move elsewhere.

Violent crimes in general, including murder, rape, assault and robbery, are also high per person. Richmond, for example, has the second-highest violent crime rate of any Virginia city in terms of per capita income. It also has one of the highest rates of property crime in the state of Virginia and ranks 10th in that category.

The bright side is that Richmond is slightly lower than any other top 10 in the number of property offences per person, and is seventh in this category. Here's the good news for Petersburg: Compared to other places we looked at, it has the second lowest violent crime rate of any Virginia city in terms of per capita income and lowest property crime in the state.

Here's the bad news: Norfolk may not have the highest violent crime and homicides rates of any other city in the country, such as Richmond, but it has one of the lowest violent crime rates of any city in Virginia. Overall, residents here are less likely to be victims of crime than residents in any other city in the state, with only 1 in 19 likely to be victims of crime in 2012. That's good enough to give residents a 0.5% risk of being the victim of a violent or property crime in Norfolk, the second lowest of any Virginia city.

Danville had the fifth most property crimes per person in 2012, which also led to an increase in the overall number of crimes against people. In fact, the rate of violence and homicide in Danville is the highest of any other city in the state and the second highest in Virginia.

Danville also had the second-highest rate of property crimes per person in the state and the third-highest in Virginia. Fredericksburg ranked eighth in this category of violent crimes, the fourth highest per capita debt for property crimes and the second highest for violent crimes.

Of course, most of these crimes involve bodily injury, so we have calculated the number of crimes per person to fairly compare the population size of each location. Yet in 2012, 15 murders were committed per 100,000 people. Of these, 28 were rapes, 149 were robberies and 149 out of every 100,000 people were robbed. Most violent crimes were assault, the rest property crimes such as theft, burglary, robbery, assault and robbery.

We will look at these 10 cities in a future section, but first of all here is how we got to this list in the first place. To see the rankings for all 37 places in our analysis, go to the end of this article.
