Kansas City and Missouri are not exactly peaceful
- Vision for Humanity
- Missouri is not at peace.
Let’s start with the good news. The Institute for Economics and Peace believes that the United States is at its most peaceful state of the past two decades. And now the bad. According to the institute’s 2012 United States Peace Index, that feeling of tranquility can’t really be attributed to either Kansas City or Missouri.
The Show-Me State was the 45th most peaceful place in the country, while the metropolitan area including Kansas City, Missouri, and Kansas City, Kansas, was the 46th most peaceful out of the 61 metro locales with the highest populations. For comparison, Kansas was the 27th most peaceful state, and St. Louis clocked in at 37th for cities surveyed.
