SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

9.9 million people live in Michigan. Now backgroundchecks.org claims to have compiled a list of the 40 safest cities for them to live in.

The list was based on FBI violent crime stats and propriety research data from the organization. Rates are normalized per 100,000 residents with the state average being 427 for violent crime and 2,044 for property crime.  This is calculated by taking (# of crimes/population) * 100,000.

Several Mid-Michigan cities or townships are on the 2016 list!
