Offenses, Offense Type, by Participating State, 2013

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

Important note about rape data

In 2013, the FBI UCR Program initiated the collection of rape data under a revised definition and removed the term “forcible” from the offense name. The UCR Program now defines rape as follows:

  • Rape (revised): Penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim. This includes the offenses of Rape, Sodomy, and Sexual Assault with an Object.
  • Rape (legacy): The carnal knowledge of a female forcibly and against her will.

The offenses of fondling, incest, and statutory rape are included in the Crimes Against Persons, Other category.

The revised and legacy rape totals are provided in Tables 2, 3, 4, 7, and 11 of Hate Crime Statistics, 2013.

General comments

  • This table presents the number of offenses distributed by the offense type and reporting state.
  • The Hate Crime Statistics Program collects details about an offender’s bias motivation associated with 13 offense types already being reported to the UCR Program: murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, rape (revised and legacy definitions), aggravated assault, simple assault, intimidation, human trafficking—commercial sex acts, and human trafficking—involuntary servitude (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. Law enforcement agencies that submit their data via the NIBRS also collect hate crime data about drug or narcotic offenses, gambling offenses, prostitution offenses, and weapon law violations, which are published in the category crimes against society.
  • Hawaii does not participate in the Hate Crime Statistics Program.

Caution to users

Valid assessments about crime, including hate crime, are possible only with careful study and analysis of the various conditions affecting each local law enforcement jurisdiction. (See Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics: Their Proper Use.) In addition, some data in this publication may not be comparable to those in prior editions of Hate Crime Statistics because of differing levels of participation from year to year. Therefore, the reader is cautioned against making simplistic comparisons between the statistical data of this program and that of others with differing methodologies or even comparing individual reporting units solely on the basis of their agency type.

Methodology

  • The data used in creating this table were from all law enforcement agencies that submitted either of the following: (1) at least one NIBRS Group A Incident Report or a Group B Arrest Report for at least 1 month of the calendar year, or (2) at least one Hate Crime Incident Report and/or a Quarterly Hate Crime Report. The published data, therefore, do not necessarily represent reports from each participating agency for all 12 months (or 4 quarters) of the calendar year.
  • In 2013, only law enforcement agencies that submitted hate crime data to the UCR Program via the NIBRS could report human trafficking offenses.  However, none of those agencies reported any human trafficking offenses with a bias motivation.
