Incidents, Bias Motivation, by Location, 2010

The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting Program’s Hate Crime
Statistics Program.

General comments

  • This table presents the number of hate crime incidents distributed by bias
    motivation and location.
  •  Beginning in 2010, reporting agencies could specify the location of an offense
    within a hate crime incident as one of 30 (formerly 25) location designations.
    The 5 new location designations are camp/campground, gambling
    facility/casino/race track, industrial site, park/playground, and shopping mall.
    However, not all reporting agencies have made the programming change to allow
    these additional location designations; therefore, the data collected to date are
    not yet representative of these location designations.
  • The Hate Crime Statistics Program collects data about both single-bias and
    multiple-bias hate crimes. A single-bias incident is defined as an incident in
    which one or more offense types are motivated by the same bias. A multiple-bias
    incident is defined as an incident in which more than one offense type occurs and
    at least two offense types are motivated by different biases.

Methodology

The data used in creating this table were from all law enforcement agencies submitting
one or more hate crime incidents for at least 1 month of the calendar year. The
published data, therefore, do not necessarily represent reports from each participating
agency for 12 months or 4 quarters.
