BURLINGTON, Vt.—An insurance company says Burlington, Vt., is the 10th safest mid-sized city in the country.
The rankings by Farmers Insurance took into account crime statistics, extreme weather, the risk of natural disaster, life expectancy and other measures.
The Burlington Free Press says the study compared 127 metropolitan areas with populations between 150,000 and 500,000 people. The Burlington metropolitan area has about 208,000 people.
The top three cities on the list were Olympia, Wash., Sioux Falls, S.D. and Bellingham, Wash.
