The 2016 data include information on 44 participating States, including disaggregated official hate crime statistics for 18 countries and a detailed overview of how 34 participating States process and record hate crimes. We changed how official data is presented and users can now download official data.
This is complemented by hate incidents in 48 participating States as reported by 125 civil society groups, the UNHRC and OSCE field operations. Incident information can also be downloaded.
Methodology (Qualitative/Quantitative and exact type used, questionnaires etc)
ODIHR’s annual hate crime reporting cycle comprises several stages. First, the Office issues a call for submissions to OSCE participating States, civil society organizations and its partner intergovernmental organizations. Second, ODIHR analyses reported data and information, and assesses whether it can be included in the report. Third, the Office releases data for consultation with participating States and other contributors. Lastly, ODIHR reviews suggested amendments to the report, updates to include late submissions, and prepares the information for final presentation.
