ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( -- St. Louis has made another ranking list, this time not for a very positive reason.

WalletHub conducted another review of U.S. cities and found St. Louis to be the least safe city in the country. In last year's review, St. Louis was the second least safe city. The safest city this year is Columbia, Maryland.

To determine the safest cities in the country, WalletHub compared 182 cities across three major dimensions: Home and community safety, natural disaster risk and financial safety.

St. Louis has the most traffic fatalities per capita while New York has the least traffic fatalities.

St. Louis also has most assaults per capita along with Kansas City, Missouri, Memphis and Detroit. Irvine, California has the fewest assaults per capita.

In case you missed it, St. Louis ranked fifth most sinful city in the country and the 10th most stressed city in the country.
