COLUMBIA — For the fifth year in a row Columbia, Maryland is named the safest city in America.

That's according to a new Wallethub study.

Baltimore ranked 161st.

The study compared 182 U.S. cities by their unemployment rates, road quality, assaults per capita, and if people are fully vaccinated. Financial safety was also taken into account. Columbia finished 92nd in that category.

The least safe city in America on this list is Saint Louis, Missouri.
