About 2018 Data
The number of cases recorded by the police refers to incidents in which the newly introduced marker "hate crimes" has been added in the recording process. The judiciary has data on the crimes of murder and grievous bodily harm aggravated by bias; however, these cannot be reported as their number does not exceed three.
