Note(s):
A census metropolitan area refers to a large urban core (at least 100,000 population) combined with adjacent urban and rural areas that have a high degree of economic and social integration. A census metropolitan area typically comprises more than one police service. Census metropolitan area populations have been adjusted to follow policing boundaries. Excludes Oshawa due to the incongruity between police service jurisdictional boundaries and census metropolitan area boundaries. Data reflect victim counts from the Incident-based Uniform Crime Reporting Survey representing 98% of the population of Canada in 2008. Includes victims under 18 years of age. Excludes incidents where the age and/or sex of the victim was unknown. Rates are calculated on the basis of 100,000 population under 18 years of age for the geographic areas policed by the Incident-based Uniform Crime Reporting Survey respondents.
