Anti-Muslim Hate Crime: An Analysis of Uniform Crime Report Hate Crime Data Pre- and Post-9/11

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Since 2001, there has been an upsurge in official statistics on religious-biased crimes against those that are perceived to be Muslim(s). An examination of 1996 to 2000 Uniform Crime Report statistics indicates that roughly two percent of religious-biased crimes reported to law enforcement involved Muslim victims. However, since 2001 that number has risen to an average of 12 percent of total religious biased-crimes, with the year 2001 constituting over 27 percent of these crimes. In this study, Uniform Crime Report Hate Crime Data and American Community Survey Data from 1999 to 2009 are used to investigate the causes of this dramatic increase in reported anti-Muslim hate crimes. The analysis specifically investigates temporal variation in indicators of religious-biased crimes reported to law enforcement involving Muslims or perceived Muslims before, during, and after September 11th, 2001. Variation across time suggests that these increases in anti-Muslim hate crime: (1) may be the result of the terrorist acts of September 11th, 2001, and subsequent continuing wars in the Middle East; (2) may be related to the heterogeneity of community religious views and practices; and (3) may be related to demographic and socioeconomic characteristics in communities where the victimization occurred.
