    In its latest release of “2015 Niche Rankings,” Niche.com named Naperville the safest city in America.

    The ranking was based on an analysis of the city’s violent and property crime data, including murder, assault, robbery, burglary, larceny and vehicle theft rates. The rankings were based on evaluations from 215 cities with populations over 100,000 residents.

    Naperville was noted for having a low crime rate with no murders reported per 100,000 residents.

    The only other Illinois city to make the list was Elgin, which ranked at no. 31.

    Elgin had an average of three murders per 100,000 residents, according to the ranking.
