San Antonio ranked No. 86 on WalletHub’s list of safest cities in America.

For this study, WalletHub compared 180+ cities across 42 key indicators that were grouped into three categories — home and community safety, risk of natural disaster, and financial safety.

The cities were ranked in each category and then given an overall safety score. Some of the indicators included percentage of residents who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, active law officers and first responders per capita, earthquake risk level, flood risk level, unemployment rate, job security, and debt-to-income ratio.

Here’s how the Alamo City stacked up across the board:

  • Overall safety score: 73.07 (out of 100)
  • Home and community safety ranking: 94
  • Risk of natural disaster ranking: 73
  • Financial safety ranking: 132
