1. Rates are calculated on the basis of 1,000,000 unmarried population (single, divorced, widowed). For this table, the separated population has been excluded from the unmarried population. This is because prior to 2007, the separated population was combined with the legally married population. As a result, the population used for the calculation of dating homicide rates differs from the population used to calculate 2010 rates of dating violence. Populations based upon July 1st estimates from Statistics Canada, Demography Division.
Note: Dating partner homicides refers to homicides committed by boyfriends/girlfriends (current and previous), and other intimate partners. Includes victims aged 15 years and older. Data on homicides between dating partners are not available prior to 1991. The Homicide Survey was revised and expanded in 1991 in an effort to respond to changing information needs.
