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 intiatives 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.).
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.
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.
a Data is displayed for selected categories under this heading. Therefore the categories may not add to the total.
b Any increase in disturbing the peace violations may be, in part, attributable to a national data quality initiative undertaken by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to properly account for the types of offences that are aggregated under this offence.Source: Statistics Canada, Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics, Special Tabulations, 2006 to 2015.
