In Utah the majority of hate crimes reported were related to race, according to the report.

Religion-motivated crimes accounted for 21.0 percent of incidents, and crimes motivated by sexual orientation accounted for 17 percent of incidents.

The FBI released its annual report on hate crime data for 2016, revealing that 4,229 single-bias hate crime offenses were done on the basis of race.

"The Department of Justice is committed to ensuring that individuals can live without fear of being a victim of violent crime based on who they are, what they believe, or how they worship", Mr. Sessions said. But incidents motivated by anti-Muslim bias saw the greatest increase out of religion-motivated crimes.
