Table 10, Data Declaration
Incidents, Bias Motivation, by Location, 2011
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting Program’s Hate Crime Statistics Program.
- This table presents the number of hate crime incidents distributed by bias motivation and location.
- In addition to the five new location designations published with the 2010 hate crime data, several other location designations were added to the hate crime data collection. As a result, 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 change to allow these additional locations 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.
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 12 months or 4 quarters.
