House of Commons Library research paper: Hate crime statistics

The highest rate of hate crimes per 100,000 population was recorded in 2017/18 in the Greater Manchester Police Force Area. The lowest rate was found in Dyfed.

This is according to the March 2019 House of Commons Library research paper on hate crime statistics in England and Wales.  

The report finds:

  • Victims of hate crime were more likely to be impacted emotionally and psychologically following a crime than victims of all crime
  • The majority of hate crimes by offence type were for public order offences – 56% of all hate crimes
  • When looking at outcomes by hate crime strand and offence type, disability and transgender hate crimes are less likely than other hate crime strands and non-hate crimes to end in a charge or summons.
