TULSA, OK – Oklahoma es el tercer estado en la lista de estados inseguros de la nación, según lo publicó el sitio WalletHub.  

 

“La seguridad es una necesidad básica de la humanidad”, lee el sitio. “Necesitamos todo tipo de seguridad, personal, financiera, en cada aspecto de nuestra vida. Pero nos sentimos más seguros en ciertos estados que en otros”. 

Wallethub generó una investigación para determinar cuáles son los estados más seguros de América. “Se compararon los 50 estados en base a 48 indicadores agrupados en base a cinco categorías distintas. Nuestros datos incluyen cuestiones que van desde ataques a las personas hasta desempleo y cantidad de desastres naturales per cápita”. 

El primer estado es el más seguro y el 50 el menos seguro. Oklahoma estuvo entre los últimos en algunas categorías como: 

Puesto 35 – Asesinatos per capita  

Puesto 44 – Seguridad en el tránsito 

Puesto 38 – Ataques violentos per capita  

Puesto 47 – Seguridad en el trabajo 

Puesto 39 – Desastres naturales per capita  

Puesto 29 – Seguridad en el empleo 

Puesto 42 – Fatalidades laborales cada 100.000 empleados a tiempo completo 

Puesto 37 – Fatalidades cada 100 millones de millas de viaje   

Puesto 30 – Cantidad de empleados de fuerzas de seguridad per capita.  

Puesto 19 – Tasa de incidencia de Bullying  

Puesto 45 – Cantidad de población sin cobertura médica  

Puesto 49 –Menor porcentaje de adultos con ahorros . 

 

Seguramente es el lugar menos indicado si a uno no le gustan los tornados, las inundaciones y otras catástrofes climáticas, aún así Oklahoma se encontró en el puesto 5 por su preparación para desastres, muy a pesar de los esfuerzos que hacen muchas agencias aquí en Tulsa y  en el resto del estado Sooner para mejorar la situación.(La Semana) 

 

 

Oklahoma 3rd “least safe” state in US 

By William R. Wynn 

 

TULSA, OK – Oklahoma is the third “least safe” state in the nation, according to a new study released by the financial website WalletHub. 

 

“Safety is a basic human need,” the company’s website states. “We require some form of it, such as personal and financial protection, in every part of daily life. But we’re likely to feel more secure in some states than in others.” 

 

WalletHub says that in order to determine the safest states in America, it “compared the 50 states across 48 key safety indicators grouped into five different categories. Our data set ranges from assaults per capita to unemployment rate to total loss amounts from climate disasters per capita.” 

 

With “1” being the safest and “50” being the least safe, Oklahoma came in near the bottom of the list in many safety categories, including: 

 

35th – Murders & Non-Negligent Manslaughters per Capita 

44th – Road Safety 

38th – Assaults per Capita 

47th – Workplace Safety 

39th – Loss Amounts from Climate Disasters per Capita 

29th – Job Security 

42nd – Fatal Occupational Injuries per 100,000 Full-Time Workers 

37th – Fatalities per 100 Million Vehicle Miles of Travel 

30th – Law-Enforcement Employees per Capita 

19th – Bullying Incidence Rate 

45th – Share of Uninsured Population 

49th – Lowest percentage of adults with “rainy day” funds 

 

Perhaps most disturbing for a place with tornadoes, flash floods, and other natural disasters, Oklahoma ranked 5th from the bottom for “emergency preparedness,” despite the efforts of many organizations in Tulsa and throughout the state to address this very issue. (La Semana)
