Offenses, Victim Type, by Offense Type, 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 victim
    type and offense type.
  • 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 (NIBRS) 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.
  • In the Hate Crime Statistics Program, the victim of a hate crime may be an
    individual, a business, an institution, or society as a whole.
  • The victim type Society/Public is collected only in the NIBRS.

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.
