(4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: Law enforcement chiefs and sheriffs. Secondary: Patrol officers, directors of advocacy organizations for immigrants, and clients of immigration advocacy organizations. While there has been great progress in understanding and measuring hate crime, many fundamental questions remain unanswered. To address these questions, we are employing a multimethod analysis of hate crime in the United States with a special focus on trends in crimes against Hispanic Americans and others perceived to be immigrants. The first phase of the project, already complete, involved gathering and analyzing relevant secondary data sets. Phase two of the project will involve a survey of a sample of 500 police departments, focus groups with law enforcement personnel and NGOs addressing hate crime in five selected sites, and interviews with expert law enforcement practitioners, trainers and researchers. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: We hope to gather 500 responses to the law enforcement survey. Agencies selected for the survey will be based on a disproportionate stratified random sample design with oversampling of agencies serving populations over 50,000. Further, we estimate that we will conduct about 20 focus groups, with about eight individuals each, and at least 60 individual interviews.
