Hate Crime by Jurisdiction
Jurisdictional data show 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.
- During 2007, 13,241 law enforcement agencies participated in the UCR Program’s hate crime data collection. Agencies provided 1 to 12 months of data about bias-motivated crime, and of those agencies, 2,025 (15.3 percent) reported 7,624 incidents.
- The remaining 84.7 percent of the participating agencies 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 those agencies that reported one or more hate crime incidents occurred in their respective jurisdictions during one or more quarters in 2007.
- Table 14 lists the agencies that indicated that no instances of hate crimes occurred in their respective jurisdictions during the quarter(s) in 2007 for which they submitted reports.
- Tables 13 and 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, other agencies, and other agencies―tribal. 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.
- The Methodology section further explains the procedures used to collect, report, and publish these data.
