A List Of The 10 Most Violent States In America

Violence and its aftermath cost the U.S. economy some $460 billion last year, according to the Institute for Economics and Peace’s second annual United States Peace Index, released on Tuesday.

Those costs – which include direct burdens like medical care for victims and the prison system and indirect factors like lost productivity – vary widely by state, with the most peaceful states bearing the lowest burden and the most violent spending
far more.

A state’s level of peacefulness is not the only factor that determines the economic toll of violence; its population and level of overall economic activity also has a strong influence.

Hit the flipper to see if your home state made it onto this notorious list.
