If you are male than I would say that Alaska is a pretty safe place to live. If you are female than I would still say it is a safe place to live, but that you need to take a lot of additional precautions against getting drunk at a bar or walking down a backstreet by yourself at night.

47.9% of the population of Alaska is female.

i would concede that ratio probably doesn’t apply to people walking down a backstreet by themself at night.
