What is the crime rate in Gadsden, AL?

Editor's Note: Alabama did not subit data to the FBI for 2019 (the most recent data year), so we used 2018 data instead.

According to the most recent data from the FBI, the total crime rate in Gadsden is 8,144.0 per 100,000 people. That's 228.82% higher than the national rate of 2,476.7 per 100,000 people and 155.68% higher than the Alabama total crime rate of 3,185.3 per 100,000 people.

Note: Because the rates of crime are so low in America, we use "per 100,000 people" to make the number a bit easier to compare across locations visually. It's mathematically the same as doing per capita comparisons and isn't conveying that there are 100,000+ people in a location.
