Excluding a handful of "multiple bias" incidents, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said 57.5 percent of all incidents a year ago were based on hate related to race, ethnicity or ancestry. "Hate crimes demand priority attention due to their special impact".

About half the 1,273 incidents involving religion were against Jews while Muslims were targeted in 307 religion-based crimes. The majority of racial hate crimes, about 50 percent, were "anti-Black or African American", while about one-in-five were "anti-White", and one-tenth were "anti-Hispanic or Latino".

Anti-Jewish incidents rose by three percent, anti-black hate crime fell by 0.3 percent and anti-Asian offenses remained flat, the report showed.

The FBI gathered their information from 15,254 law enforcement agencies.

There were more than 6,100 hate crimes last year, up about 5 percent over the previous year.

Some civil rights groups caution that the FBI's annual figures are artificially low because they rely on voluntary reporting.

The rise marked the first time since 2004 that hate crime in the United States has increased two years in a row. Hate incidents increased from 203 in 2015 to 285 in 2016.

Crimes motivated by a religious bias were the second-most reported type of hate crime.

"No person should have to fear being violently attacked because of who they are, what they believe, of how they worship", US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. Crimes motivated by bias against Protestants and Eastern Orthodox Christians both declined.

In Ogden there were 4 reports of hate crimes against someone's sexual orientation; in all there were nine reports of sexual orientation hate crimes. No reported crimes were motivated by a disability, gender or gender identity.
