Jurisdictional data provide aggregate state totals and individual agency breakdowns of bias-motivated incidents (hate crimes) that law enforcement agencies submitted to the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.    

  • In 2010, the UCR Program’s Hate Crime Statistics Program included 14,977 participating law enforcement agencies that provided 1 to 12 months of data about bias-motivated crime.  Of these agencies, 1,949 (13.0 percent) reported 6,628 incidents.
  • The remaining 87.0 percent of agencies participating in the Hate Crime Statistics Program reported that no hate crimes occurred in their jurisdictions.
  • Table 12 presents the following data for each state:  the total number of participating agencies, the population represented, the number of agencies that submitted data about hate crime incidents, and the number of incidents reported.
  • Table 13 provides the data from agencies that reported one or more hate crime incidents in their respective jurisdictions during one or more quarters in 2010.
  • Table 14 lists the agencies that indicated that no instances of hate crimes occurred in their respective jurisdictions during the quarter(s) in 2010 for which they submitted reports.
  • Table 13 and Table 14 present the data by state, and each state is subdivided by agency type.  Agency types include:  cities, universities and colleges, metropolitan counties, nonmetropolitan counties, state police agencies, tribal agencies, and other agencies.  The data published for universities and colleges represent crime reported only by those individual university/college law enforcement agencies that contributed to the UCR Program.  The tables do not specify information about educational institutions that reported hate crime data via their local law enforcement agencies.
  • Table 13 and Table14 also indicate the number of incidents reported by quarter within the year for which each agency contributed hate crime data to the UCR Program.
  • The Methodology section of this publication further explains the procedures used to collect, report, and publish these data.
