Germany regularly reports hate crime data to ODIHR. Germany's criminal code contains a sentencing provision applicable to any crime in the code. Hate crime data are collected as part of its framework to address politically-motivated crimes. Data on hate crime and hate speech are collected together. However, authorities are able to disaggregate data on violent offences. The authorities responsible for data collection include the police at the state and federal levels and the Federal Statistics Office.

About 2012 Data
Police figures include hate crimes, incitement to hatred and propaganda offences.
Prosecution and sentencing figures only include incitement to hatred and propaganda crimes, and are therefore not included.
ODIHR observes that Germany has not reported on hate crimes separately from cases of hate speech and/or discrimination.
