The study ranked states in five categories:1) Personal & Residential Safety, 2) Financial Safety, 3) Road Safety, 4) Workplace Safety, and 5) Emergency Preparedness.

In the words of the study's authors: ''We evaluated those dimensions using 52 relevant metrics, which are listed below with their corresponding weights. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the highest level of safety.''

Wyoming received high marks for financial safety and personal and residential safety. It was tied with New Jersey for having the most law enforcement officers per capita of the states. It ranked somewhat lower for road safety, workplace safety, and emergency preparedness, although it was still in the upper half of the country in all of those areas.
