Table 8: incidents, victim type, by bias motivation, 2012.
* This table presents the number of hate crime incidents distributed by the victim type and 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.
* 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 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.
