Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $39,995)
The purpose of this research is to examine the unique nature of bias-motivated assaults by using data from the National Incident-Based Reporting System for the year 2003-2011, the National Crime Victimization Survey for the year 2003-2011, and the Law Enforcement Management and Administrative Statistics survey for the years 2003 and 2007. Three aspects of the victimization will be studied including likelihood and extent of injury, the decision to report to the police and reasons for not reporting, and the impact of specialized bias crime units on clearance rates for bias-motivated incidents. A variety of statistical techniques will be used and complex sampling designs addressed.
