Abstract: One set of tables presents data on hate-crime offenses, which involve those offenses motivated by biases based on race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity/national origin, and disability. The data show that in 2010, 1,949 law enforcement agencies reported 6,628 hate crimes that involved 7,699 offenses. Data are reported by bias motivation and type of offense and type of victim. Another set of tables indicates the types of victims targeted in hate crimes, i.e., an individual, a business, an institution, or society as a whole. A third set of tables focuses on the number of offenders involved and, when possible, the apparent race of the offender. In 2010, of the 6,008 known hate-crime offenders, 58.6 percent were White; 18.4 percent were Black; 8.9 percent were committed by groups composed of various races; 1.1 percent were Asian/Pacific Islander; 1.0 percent were American Indian/Alaskan Nation; and 12.0 percent were of unknown race. Data are also provided on the broad categories of offenses and the subtypes of offenses within those categories. A fourth set of tables specifies the location type from 25 location options, e.g., residence or home, schools or colleges, and parking lots or garages.
