Top 20 – Safe Large Metro Areas for California: 2012

safe large metro areasEach year, Farmers Insurance ranks hundreds of U.S. communities based on safety and security. Using 2012 data compiled by researchers at Sperling’s BestPlaces, the study of safe large metro areas took into consideration a number of criteria, including economic stability, crime statistics, extreme weather, risk
of natural disasters, housing depreciation, foreclosures, air quality,
environmental hazards, life expectancy, motor vehicle fatalities, and
employment numbers.

“Our most secure large metropolitan areas are islands of security in our
challenging times,” said Bert Sperling, president of Sperling’s
BestPlaces. ”Some have a stable economy due to their local colleges and
seats of government, and some may be fortunate that their locale is not prone to hurricanes, tornadoes or earthquakes. Although each metropolitan area is different, they all possess a desirable combination
of factors (jobs, low crime rates, housing, climate, health, reduced levels of natural disasters) that make these some of the best places to live in the United States.”

Our own Orange County metro area is featured as number 19 on the list – we should all feel grateful to live in a safe large metro area, which allows us to take advantage of relatively low insurance costs (of course there are other factors here which cause some of our insurances to be higher than average.)
