The number of hate crimes rose almost 5 percent across the country in 2016, according to new data released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday.

The stats break down the hate crimes by motivation including: race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, gender, and gender identity.

The FBI's report was consistent with a report released earlier this year by a civil rights group that found an apparent increase in the number of anti-Muslim hate groups this past year.

There were 40 hate crimes reported in the state past year, the highest number of bias-related incidents since 2010. Some agencies also may not determine an incident is a hate crime until after the FBI's deadline to report.

Minnesota's 2016 figures come from just 10 percent of participating agencies statewide.

Hate crimes happened in a variety of locations.
