Crime Rates?

'Crime is crippling' is certainly the highest, and 'Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown' is certainly the lowest crime rate. 'Moderate' is the threshold crime rate for which an excuse is given: either a poorly funded police force or complete lack of prisons. I believe that "relatively low" comes after it and is the threshold crime rate for which either a well-funded/all-pervasive police force or progressive policies in education and social welfare are credited. "Well under control' is one step lower.

But what exactly are all of the crime rankings in their proper order? I have always wondered about this...

Here's my guess, worst crime rates, to lowest.

Major Problem
Relatively low
Well under control
totally unknown
--especially youth related-- is totally unknown

The last two could simply be variations though.

I have a feeling that 'totally unknown' is lower than '-especially youth-related-is totally unknown'.

If crime rates are totally unknown because of 'all-pervasive police and progressive policies in education and social welfare', it will be lower than the totally unknown rate because of 'all-pervasive police'.

I think that I have seen 'serious problem' around too.

As for the credit given to various aspects of socioty, I do not beleive that they affect the actual crime rate but are just given reasons for such a crime rate within a nation based on its characteristics.

BTW, an all-prevasive police force is sometimes credited at the same time as porgressive policies in education and social welfare.
