1. The crime rate consists of all Criminal Code offences excluding traffic. It also excludes drug offences and all federal statutes. All offences are included in the Crime Severity Index.
2. The violent crime rate has been expanded to include a number of offences not previously included in the violent crime rate, including uttering threats, criminal harassment and forcible confinement. Data using this definition of violent crime are available back to 1998.
