Today, Statistics Canada launches a new online edition of Juristat.

This publication, which will be released five times a year, is a source of analysis and data on issues relating to Canada's justice system. The publication will also serve as a key point of access to other Statistics Canada crime and justice related data and analysis. Each edition of Juristat features multiple articles exploring a range of justice related issues.

Today's inaugural electronic issue of Juristat features two articles.

"Homicide in Canada, 2007" is an examination of annual data on the characteristics of homicide incidents, international comparisons of homicide, gang-related homicides, firearm-related homicides, youth homicide and family (including spousal) homicides.

"Remand in adult corrections and sentencing patterns" discusses changes in sentencing patterns in relation to the number of adults held in remand (pre-trial detention) and the length of remand stays.

The first issue of the electronic format of Juristat, Vol. 28, no. 9 (85-002-XWE, free) is now available online. From the Publications module of our website, under Free Internet publications, choose Crime and justice, then Juristat.
