Annual Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents
Anti-Semitic incidents in the United States decreased in 2011, according to statistics from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which tracks incidents against Jewish individuals, synagogues, and community institutions. It is the lowest number of anti-Semitic incidents recorded by ADL in the past two decades.
The League’s annual Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents, counted a total of 1,080 anti-Semitic incidents across the United States in 2011.
ADL’s Annual Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents comprises data from forty-five states and the District of Columbia, including official crime statistics as well as information provided to ADL’s regional offices by victims, law enforcement officers, and community leaders. The Audit identifies both criminal acts, such as vandalism, violence and threats of violence; and non-criminal incidents of harassment and intimidation, including hate propaganda leafleting and verbal slurs.
