Incidents, Victim Type, by Bias Motivation, 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 the victim
    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.
  • 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.

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.
