Hate crimes USA: Jews are the most targeted

# of offenses = number of “hate crimes” reported by U.S. Department of Justice for 2008

size of target = for the “racial” groups, US Census data; for the religious groups, poll data of self-identified religious adherents, corrected to include both children and adults; all rounded to nearest million, except that for Jews and Muslims the rounding is to the nearest 100,000.

Interpretation: Proportionately, Jews were targeted more than three times as often as Blacks, more than four times as often as Muslims.
