Dataset

Hate Crimes--Number of Incidents, Offenses, Victims,

Added By Infochimps

The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 310):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467
0469 0479 0480 0481 0482 0483 0484 0485 0486 0487 0559 0628 0629
1144 1227 1231

This dataset consists of a table of 46 rows and 5 columns.

The FBI collected statistics on hate crimes from 12,417 law enforcement agencies representing over 245 million inhabitants in 2005. Hate crime offenses cover incidents motivated by race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity/national origin, and disability

Footnotes

  1. The term “victim” may refer to a person, business, institution, or a society as a whole.
  2. The term “known offender” does not imply that the identity of the suspect is known, but
    only that the identity of the suspect is identified which distinquishes him/her from an
    unknown offender.
  3. In a “multiple-bias incident” two conditions must be met: more than one offense type must occur
    in the incident and at least two offense types must be motivated by different biases.
