1. Due to the variability in small numbers, percent changes in the rates of youth accused of homicide are not calculated.
2. Due to the variability in small numbers, percent changes have not been calculated when the number of youth accused of robbery is below 5 in any given year.
3. Crime rates are based upon Criminal Code incidents (excluding traffic offences). See Table 4 for a list of offences included in the total violent crime, total property crime and total crime categories.
Notes: Refers to the number of youth (12 to 17) years of age who were either charged (or recommended for charging) by police or diverted from the formal criminal justice system through the use of warnings, cautions, referrals to community programs, etc. Counts are based upon the most serious violation in the incident. One incident may involve multiple violations. Provincial and territorial data for specific types of youth crime are available (in most cases) beginning in 1977. Rates are calculated on the basis of 100,000 youth population (12 to 17 years). Percent change based on unrounded rates. Populations based upon July 1st estimates from Statistics Canada, Demography Division.
