(New York) Forbes magazine is out with its list of the country’s most dangerous cities.

Detroit tops the list for a fourth year in a row.

While the most violent crimes fell 10-percent in Detroit last year, the crime rate is still five-times the national average.

Detroit is followed by St. Louis, Oakland, Memphis and Birmingham.

Atlanta, Baltimore, Stockton, Cleveland and Buffalo round out the top 10.

The magazine looked over the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports for 2011.

It only included cities with populations over 200,000.
