Sudbury is the safest community in Greater Boston, according to a new analysis from Niche.

With a murder, robbery, and vehicle theft rate of zero (and a very low assault rate), Sudbury was rated highly in all measures of Niche’s study, which analyzed data from the FBI and U.S. census.

Below, we’ve spotlighted specific crime stats for Greater Boston’s 10 safest communities. Two things we should note: first, all the below rates are per 100,000 residents; and second, we opted not to include the areas’ murder rates, as they were 0 per 100,000 for all communities.
