Jacksonville is known for some pretty neat things, like museums, the Little Talbot Island State Park, and art walks. However, there are some pretty dangerous areas too.

This article analyzes the ten most dangerous neighborhoods in Jacksonville, Florida. These neighborhoods are ranked by the number of violent crimes.

How Are The Neighborhoods Ranked?

Before we check out the ten most dangerous Jacksonville areas, it's only fair if you know precisely how they were ranked.

The ranks are based on violent crimes per 100k people in the population. It is important to note that this does NOT include all crimes; violent crimes include murder, assault, and robbery. This ranks the neighborhoods on a percentage-based system. Percentage-based systems aim to make the ranks as fair as possible since each neighborhood will have a different number of residents.

This system also accounts for each neighborhood's violent crime rate compared to Jacksonville's overall violent crime rate. Part of how it judges the most dangerous neighborhoods is by how far above or below the average each neighborhood's rate falls.

Now that you know how the ranks were determined let's jump right into the ten most dangerous places to live in Jacksonville, Florida.
