1. About 7 in 10 admissions were for reasons of abuse. In addition, the total number of admissions of women includes women who may have been admitted more than once. Each shelter visit is counted as a separate admission. Not all facilities reported fiscal year admissions data to the Transition Home Survey.
2. Rates are calculated per 100,000 women aged 15 years and over.
3. Numbers may be different from numbers produced by Manitoba Victim Services due to difference in scope and methodology.
Note: Rates are based upon July 1st population estimates of women aged 15 years and over. Different methodologies for the calculation of rates may have been used in the past; thus, comparisons to previous reports should be made with caution. Due to the variability in small numbers, percent changes have not been calculated when the number of shelters is below 10 in any given year.
