PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Oregonians hoping to avoid the famous fights and tramplings on Black Friday can rest assured: Oregon is one of the safest states to go shopping on the day after Thanksgiving.

Real estate website Estately released a list of the states where you're most likely to encounter fights on Black Friday, and Oregon is ranked 47th out of 50 states.

Washington ranked slightly higher at 44th.

Estately looked at two factors to come up with the rankings: Percentage of Facebook users in each state who expressed interest in Black Friday sales and the frequency of aggravated assaults in each state.

By averaging those two values, Arkansas came out on the top of the list of places where you're most likely to get hurt on Black Friday.

Massachusetts ranked at the very bottom of the list.
