For example, the area has a crime rate of 6, but another city may have a higher crime rate but not be deemed as dangerous due to lower level crime or minor offences being committed.

Either way, high crime rates are never a good sign so consider the rate against the UK average of 79.52 for every 1000 people as a benchmark.
