Upper Providence Township Once Again Ranked Safest Place in Pennsylvania


For the second year in a row, Upper Providence Township in Delaware County has been ranked the safest place in Pennsylvania, according to research conducted by the team at ValuePenguin, a personal finance website that analyzes a variety of topics from insurance, to credit cards, to everyday spending.

ValuePenguin analyzed data for 227 communities in Pennsylvania with populations of at least 10,000 people to determine the safest communities.

Upper Providence, with a population of slightly more than 10,000 people, had the lowest rate of property crime of any city in the study. The affluent community has a median household income of $107,311, which is more than double the median household income of the state.

As part of its research, ValuePenguin collected data from the 2014 FBI crime statistics by city, which provides the most recent crime data available. It also excluded towns with fewer than 5,000 residents because towns with small populations are more sensitive to crime score fluctuations for fewer crimes committed.

Radnor Township and Haverford Township checked in at Nos. 8 and 10, respectively, for the safest places in the state with more than 30,000 people.
