Unit of Count - Incident
Note: The states included in this study are those states that have been certified to submit NIBRS data to the FBI.
There are many other states still testing their data submissions in preparation for certification. Therefore, it is important
to note that when viewing this table that the bias crime incidents are not a national count or a national sample. We have found
that some of the general patterns in the NIBRS data reflect those in the larger National Hate Crime Data Collection Program.
Therefore, the analysis of NIBRS data from these contributing states might contribute to our understanding of the nature and extent
of bias crimes in the United States. However, all statements based on these data should be limited to the participating states and
not generalized to a broader population.
