Understanding about the psychological trauma experienced by hate crime victims compared with victims of non-bias crime has been accumulating over the past two decades from an international body of research. The most robust survey evidence to date about the greater psychological impact of hate crime compared with non-bias crime has been produced from analyses of the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) (formerly known as the British Crime Survey). In this chapter, using data collected by the US Bureau of Justice Statistics National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) we test out whether differences between the mental trauma experienced by hate crime victims and victims of otherwise motivated crime hold in another national context — the United States.
