Hate Crime Statistics
Each year, the FBI publishes data concerning bias-motivated offenses reported by law enforcement to gauge the scope and nature of hate crime in the nation. This report chronicles crimes that were motivated by bias against race, gender and gender identity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity. Tables include information about the types of offenses committed, some traits of the victims and the offenders, and aggregate hate crime offense counts by state and agency type.
Beginning with the 2013 edition, the FBI will also publish data for crimes motivated by bias against a particular gender and gender identity, as well as for hate crimes committed by or directed against juveniles. In addition, data for both race and ethnicity will be presented in accordance with the standards established by the U.S. Government’s Office of Management and Budget.
The 2013 edition of the annual report Hate Crime Statistics is tentatively scheduled for release in the fall of 2014.
When the data become available, data users will be able to access the information by viewing it on the Internet and by downloading Adobe Acrobat files and Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. A press release will be issued concurrently with the publication Hate Crime Statistics, 2013.
Hate Crime Statistics, 2013, is the third electronic publication in a series of annual reports from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. To view prior editions of this publication or others in the series, go to the UCR Program’s home page.
