The Home Office collects and publishes statistics annually on the number of hate crime offences recorded by the police in England and Wales by five centrally monitored strands: race, religion, sexual orientation, disability and transgender.

Information on the number of hate crime offences recorded by the police can be found in ‘Hate Crime, England and Wales, 2019/20’ statistical bulletin, available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/hate-crime-england-and-wales-2019-to-2020 Information has not previously been collected on the race or ethnicity of victims but will be during 2021/22 and published in due course.
