Answer for Hate Crime (8)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

A total of 22,679 distinct hate crimes were recorded between 8th May 2016 and 30th June 2017. The daily average during this time period was 54 crimes per day.

The total number and daily average breakdown for each hate crime type during this period is given below.  It should be noted that the totals for each hate crime type exceeds the total number of distinct hate crimes.  This is because anti-Semitic and Islamaphobic hate crimes are a subset of faith hate crimes, and multiple hate crime flags may be applied to the same record, for example a crime may be classified as both racially and disability motivated.
