Genesee County lies in Michigan's Lower Peninsula, north of Oakland and Livingston Counties. It is surrounded by Shiawassee, Saginaw, Tuscola, and Lapeer Counties to the west, north, and east, respectively. The county seat and population center of Genesee County is the city of Flint, Michigan, home of the headquarters of General Motors Corporation. Genesee County's population consists of 425,790 residents, of which almost a quarter, or 102,434 people, live in Flint. Like many of the industrialized areas of Michigan, Genesee County has experienced higher-than-average unemployment in recent years, at some times reported at higher than 15%.
Genesee County covers almost 650 square miles. Most of the land in the county is very flat, but the southern end is hilly and covered by several lakes. Genesee County is made up of 11 cities, five villages, 29 townships, and eight unincorporated communities.
The crime rate in Genesee County is close to the Michigan state average. On average, residents of Genesee County are somewhat more likely than other residents of Michigan to experience a property-related crime, and somewhat less likely than other Michigan residents to experience a violent crime. However, these statistics are heavily skewed by the crime rate in the city of Flint. Flint is a high-crime city, whose crime rate is more than twice the national average. Residents of Flint are much more likely to be the victim of a property crime than other residents of Genesee County, and the violent crime rate is about the same as the Michigan state average.
