Table 1: incidents, offenses, victims, and known offenders, by bias motivation, 2012.

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, offenses, victims, and known offenders distributed by 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.

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 all 12 months (or 4 quarters) of the calendar year.

 Incidents (3)

(1) The term victim may refer to a person, business, institution, or
society as a whole.

(2) The term known offender does not imply that the identity of the
suspect is known, but only that an attribute of the suspect has been
identified, which distinguishes him/her from an unknown offender.

(3) In a multiple-bias incident, two conditions must be met: (a)
more than one offense type must occur in the incident and (b) at
least two offense types must be motivated by different biases.
