This database reports the number of hate crime incidents by all U.S. law enforcement agencies.  More than 91 percent of agencies participate in the collection of these data.  Incidents for non-reporting agencies are excluded.  

NA indicates that agencies reported no data for the selected category.  A value of zero (0) indicates that 0 was reported explicitly.  The FBI has over time modified some categories.  For example, the FBI began reporting data for Gender and Gender identity in 2013, so all previous years are reported as NA, or Not Available.  Similarly, the FBI has expanded some category definitions over time, e.g., the anti-religious category now includes 14 separate religious, from anti-Jewish to anti-Sikh.  These are reported as NA in years before this expansion.
