Table 6: offenses, victim type, by offense type, 2012.

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

General comments

* This table presents the number of hate crime offenses distributed by the victim type and offense type.

* The Hate Crime Statistics Program collects details about an offender's bias motivation associated with 11 offense types already being reported to the UCR Program: murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, aggravated assault, simple assault, and intimidation (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 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.

* 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.

* The victim type Society/Public is collected only in the NIBRS.


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.
