Supplementary notes

* Criminal offences with an extremist background connected to right-wing politically motivated crime.

This statistic includes completed and attempted criminal offences. Each act was counted only once, according to the source. When, for example, bodily harm was inflicted at the same time as a breach of the peace, only the bodily harm will appear as the offence with the higher threat of punishment in the statistic. If several criminal offences were committed, only the more heavily punishable offence was counted.

Figures for the years up until 2016 were retrieved from earlier issues of the Defense of the Constitution Report.
