A Secure Life has released a new survey showing where the most and the fewest break-ins happen.
Citing 2017 FBI statistics on burglaries, the survey listed New York as the state with the fewest amount of break-ins per 100,000 residents.
A number of northeastern states ranked near New York on the list for low amounts of break-ins.
The survey says New York probably ranks the highest due to a high amount of the population living in urban settings. According to A Secure Life, high rises and apartment buildings are “much less conducive to break-ins than houses on larger pieces of property.”
The south and southwest had the most amount of break-ins. Topping that list is New Mexico.
Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama were also ranked in the top 10 for burglaries. The survey says this could be due to lower population densities in those states.
