Hate crimes are notoriously difficult to quantify. While journalists and other organizations have made extensive efforts collecting reports of hate incidents from citizens, the most comprehensive and reliable data source remains the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports database.
LiveStories compiled data from the UCR reports for the past six years. This story presents five facts about the data, presented via interactive charts. The story enables readers to easily make sense out of the FBI’s data and filter it by categories of bias. It also shows starkly apparent gaps in hate crime reportage, particularly in the South.
