5 U.S. Cities Too Dangerous to Move To

Second-most-dangerous U.S. city to move to: Camden, N.J.

The crime rate in the hometown of Campbell Soup Co. (CPB) is anything but "Mmm Mmm Good."

Located across the Delaware River from Philadelphia (itself ranked as America's 50th-most-dangerous city), Camden's 77,300 residents face a violent-crime rate that's 7.2 times the U.S. average.

That includes a murder rate more than 12 times the national average, as well as 9.7 times more robberies than what's typical for a city its size. Camden also has 6.4 times the national rate of aggravated assaults and 3.2 times the rate of rapes.

"All of those numbers are outrageously high, but the murder and armed-robbery rates are really standouts," Schiller says.

Unfortunately, Camden's nonviolent-crime levels aren't much better.

Locals face more than twice the typical U.S. property-crime rate, including 4.5 times the usual number of car thefts for a community Camden's size. All told, residents have about a 1-in-11 chance of becoming crime victims in any given year.
