Court Street is seen Aug. 29, 2018, in downtown Binghamton, New York.

(The Center Square) – Binghamton, New York, experienced the highest property crime rate – 4,218.3 per 100,000 people – among the cities with populations of 20,000 or more in the state, according to an analysis by 24/7 Wall St.

The city recorded 1,893 property crimes in 2018, including 427 burglaries and 59 vehicle thefts, the analysis states. The poverty rate in the city at that time was 33.2 percent.

Because property crimes are often committed to gain money or other benefits, cities with higher property crime rates often have elevated poverty rates, according to 24/7 Wall St. They often exceed the overall U.S. poverty rate of 14.1 percent, the report says.

About 7.2 million property crimes were recorded nationwide in 2018, which breaks down to 2,199.5 such crimes per 100,000 people, according to the analysis. The website’s report is based on the FBI’s 2018 Uniform Crime Report.
