Note(s):
Percentages may not total 100% due to rounding. A census metropolitan area consists of one or more neighbouring municipalities situated around a major urban core. A census metropolitan area 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 census metropolitan area, other adjacent municipalities must have a high degree of integration with the central urban area, as measured by commuting flows derived from census data. 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. Coverage for each census metropolitan area is virtually 100% except for the following: Winnipeg (99%), Saskatoon (99%), Brantford (95%), Windsor (91%), Toronto (91%), Hamilton (75%) and Barrie (70%). Excludes incidents where the sex and/or age of the victim was unknown.
