Many of the above stated individual "attacks" or attacks on housing are not counted as "attacks" in Germany since these are quite often not violent crime - as in not injuring anyone. Technically there were 634 crimes in 2016 that were considered under "PMK-Rechts-Ausländerfeindlich-Gewalttat" (politically motivated crime - right-wing - anti-foreigner - violent crime). Many of the stated attacks are counted under nonviolent crime, for which in the same category there were 3,445 incidences in 2016.
Of the 634 violent crimes:
- 47.5% occured in the six East-German states where 19.6% of the general population and 17.8% of all refugees live (correlation 1:0.41:0.37)
- 23.9% occured in Northrhine-Westfalia where 21.7% of the general population and 23.9% of all refugees live (correlation 1:0.91:1)
- 10.3% occured in the four Northwest-German states where 16.2% of the general population and 18.4% of all refugees live (correlation 1:1.57:1.79)
- 18.3% occured in the five South-German states where 42.5% of the general population and 39.9% of all refugees live (correlation 1:2.32:2.18)
It should be noted in this regard that among those in the East there are only three states that this is focused on. In Saxony-Anhalt and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern the incidence rate of violent crime against foreigners is more than three times higher than average, in Brandenburg state it's more than five times higher than average. Berlin and Saxony both have an incidence rate less than twice as high as average, and Thuringia has entirely South-German levels of incidence.
