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 2014 Data
Year-to-year drop in the reported figure is due to increased ability of German authorities to disaggregate data on hate crimes from those on incitement to hatred, propaganda and other similar offences. 106 Crimes motivated by bias against social status were also reported but are not presented on this page.
ODIHR observes that Germany has not reported the numbers of prosecuted and/or information on sentenced hate crime cases to ODIHR.
