Ohio, nicknamed as the Buckeye State or the Birthplace of Aviation, has the third largest capital in the US, Columbus. Columbus has a population of about 787,000 and is also the state’s largest city. As of 2016 estimates, the population of Ohio totals to 11,646,273.
The most dangerous city in Ohio is Toledo. Here the violent crime rate, which is 583.6 per 100,000 residents, is much higher than the nation as a whole. The main reason behind this is the insufficient number of police officers. While the situation is gradually getting worse in Toledo, the crime rate for the state is twice as low, 291.9 per 100,000 people. As for the city’s unemployment rate, it’s 4.9% (5.2% for the state), the poverty rate is 17.2% in Toledo. Capital punishment is legal in the state of Ohio. Dover and Bellevue are known as the safest cities.
