Survey Results:

Most San Francisco residents (82%) report feeling safe or very safe when walking alone in their neighborhood during the day, and just over half (51%) report feeling safe or very safe when walking alone in their neighborhood at night. Declines in feelings of safety resulted in the overall safety grade dropping from a “B+” in 2015 to a “B” in 2017, and the safety during the day grade dropping from an “A-” to a “B+”. These are two of only four letter grade changes in the 2017 City Survey.
