Hate crimes are hard to count. The FBI collects hate crime statistics, but these are often criticized for a variety of reasons. Local police agencies are supposed to report incidents to the FBI, but many do not.

In early 2017, ProPublica launched Documenting Hate, an initiative that brings news organizations together to collect stories of hate across the United States.
