Offenses, Offense Type, by Bias Motivation, 2010

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

General comments

  • This table presents the number of hate crime offenses distributed by the offense
    type and bias motivation.
  • 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.
  • The Hate Crime Statistics Program collects details about an offender’s bias
    motivation associated with 11 offense types already being reported to the UCR
    Program: murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, aggravated
    assault, simple assault, and intimidation (crimes against persons); and robbery,
    burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, arson, and
    destruction/damage/vandalism (crimes against property). The law enforcement
    agencies that participate in the UCR Program via the National Incident-Based
    Reporting System collect data about additional offenses for crimes against
    persons and crimes against property. These data appear in Hate Crime Statistics
    in the category of other.

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.
