Data on incidents that come to the attention of police are captured and forwarded to the CCJS according to a nationally approved set of common scoring rules and definitions. The reader should note however, that many factors could influence official crime statistics. These include: reporting by the public to the police; reporting by police to the CCJS; and the impact of new intiative such as changes in legislation, policies or enforcement polices.
Year-over-year comparisons should be made with caution as many non-criminally related factors can affect data from one year to another (openings, closures or reorganizations of police departments, redistribution of municipalities serviced among different police departments, significant population increases etc.).
The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Survey produces a continuous historical record of crime and traffic statistics reported by every police agency in Canada since 1962. In 1988, a new version of the survey was created, UCR2, and is since referred to as the "incident-based" survey, in which microdata on characteristics of incidents, victims and accused are captured.

Part of the 2007 increase in crime in St. Johns, NL and Saint John, NB
can be attributed to changes in police reporting practices rather than
actual increases in criminal activity. This would affect the provincial totals in New Brunswick and
Newfoundland and Labrador.
Data for Youth Charged with Impaired Driving are not available prior to 2007. As a result, comparisons of Total all violations and Total Criminal Code violations (including traffic) over time should be made with caution.
In 2011, the introduction of the Immediate Roadside Prohibition (IRP) in British Columbia provided an alternative method for officers to proceed with penalties for impaired drivers and may account for the trends reported for 2011 and 2012.
Count data for criminal code traffic violations in the 12-17 (youth) age group has been suppressed at the national level in 2006 due to data quality issues.
The "adult" age group includes those age 18 and over, and the "youth"
age group includes offenders under 18. Although almost all youth
offenders are aged 12-17, there may be a small number of offenders under
12 years of age included in the data.
Figures may not add to total due to random rounding.Source: Statistics Canada, Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics, Special Tabulations, 2006 to 2015.
