Table 10: incidents, bias motivation, by location, 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 distributed by bias motivation and location.

* Reporting agencies may specify the location of an offense within a hate crime incident as one of 45 location designations. However, not all reporting agencies have made the programming changes to allow the relatively new location designations; therefore the data collected to date are not yet representative of all location designations.

* 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 a calendar year.

(1) 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.

(2) The location designation School/collegehas been retained for
agencies that have not updated their records management systems to
include the new location designations of School-college/university
and School-elementary/secondary, which allow for more specificity in
reporting.
