1. A census metropolitan area (CMA) consists of one or more neighbouring municipalities situated around a major urban core. A CMA must have a total population of at least 100,000 of which 50,000 or more live in the urban core. To be included in the CMA, other adjacent municipalities must have a high degree of integration with the central urban area, as measured by commuting flows derived from census data.
2. The following CMAs are excluded from this table due to the unreliability of data: Saguenay, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières, Kingston, Peterborough, Oshawa, Brantford, Guelph, Windsor, Barrie, Greater Sudbury, Thunder Bay, Kelowna, Abbotsford-Mission.
3. Total violent victimization includes: sexual assault, robbery and physical assault.
4. Total household victimization includes: break and enter, motor vehicle theft/parts, theft of household property and vandalism.
5. Rates are calculated on the basis of 1,000 population age 15 years and older.
6. Rates are calculated on the basis of 1,000 households.
Note: Caution should be used in making comparisons between CMAs, as not all differences between CMA estimates are statistically significant.
