Hate crime statistics.

Each year, the FBI publishes data concerning bias-motivated offenses reported by law enforcement to gauge the scope and nature of hate crime in the Nation. This report chronicles crimes that were motivated by bias against race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity/national origin, or disability. Tables in the report include information about the types of offenses committed, some traits of the victims and the offenders, and aggregate hate crime offense counts by state and agency type.
