The Annual Report section provides:

Categorization of antisemitic activities sometimes varies from one source to another.
Our classification scheme divides these activities into:
a) attacks using violent means.
b) violent acts without the use of a weapon
c) all expressions and modes of propaganda, notably Holocaust denial
It should be emphasized that the surveys are based on reported cases only,
and that the data presented
statistics section include only violent attacks intended to cause
loss of life and cases of actual damage to property.
Aware of the difficulties in assessing whether an incident was motivated by antisemitism or was an act
of hooliganism, since the identity of the perpetrators is often difficult to establish, the Institute's
staff double check all incoming data. It should be noted that the variety of information coming from different
areas, as well as their methods of classification, requires a diversified approach on the part of the authors and editors,
thus ruling out complete uniformity. Multinational and national NGOs, government organizations, research institutes
and individuals, and Israeli and Jewish organizations, supply the relevant data and material, as well as opinions and
The general analyses, together with synopses of the country reports and statistical data, appear in the Institute's annual publication Antisemitism Worldwide
