New York ranks as the 10th-safest state nationwide, a new report by WalletHub shows.

WalletHub—a social website launched by Evolution Finance that offers financial tools and information for consumers and small business owners—compared the 50 states and District of Columbia based on 26 metrics for its report, Safest States to Live In. Categories include workplace safety, emergency preparedness, home and community stability, traffic safety and financial security.

New York ranked second in annual consumer savings account averages and fifth for assaults per capita. The state ranked 10th for murder and non-negligent manslaughters per capital and 12th for fatalities per 100 million vehicle miles of travel.

In broader categories, New York ranked third for home and community safety and ninth for its financial safety. New York’s driving safety ranked 13th, while its workplace safety rank was 31st.

Massachusetts ranked No. 1 on the list, while Nevada ranked 51st.
