Hate Crime Statistics 2013   [open html - 41KB]

This is the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) 2013 Hate Crime Statistics webpage. The FBI's annual Hate Crime Statistics webpage is comprised of data collected by the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. "On April 23, 1990, Congress passed the Hate Crime Statistics Act, 28 U.S.C. § 534, which required the Attorney General to collect data 'about crimes that manifest evidence of prejudice based on race, religion, sexual orientation, or ethnicity.' The Attorney General delegated the responsibilities of developing the procedures for implementing, collecting, and managing hate crime data to the Director of the FBI, who, in turn, assigned the tasks to the UCR Program. Under the direction of the Attorney General and with the cooperation and assistance of many local and state law enforcement agencies, the UCR Program created a hate crime data collection to comply with the congressional mandate. […] The designers of the Hate Crime Statistics Program sought to capture information about the types of bias that motivate crimes, the nature of the offenses, and some information about the victims and offenders. […] The hate crime data in this Web publication comprise a subset of information that law enforcement agencies submit to the UCR Program." This interactive webpage allows readers to browse hate crime statistics by the following five categories: Incidents and Offenses, Victims, Offenders, Location Type, and Hate Crime by Jurisdiction. For each category, readers can view statistical tables, learn important notes about the data collected, and review an overview of the data for that category.
