Non-violent offences are counted in terms of the number of incidents. For non-violent offences (property, drug etc.), the basic counting rule is that one offence is counted for each distinct or seperate incident. The number of non-violent offences equals the number of non-violent incidents. The exception to this rule occurs when there is a theft of multiple vehicles from the same place at the same time, each vehicle would be counted as a seperate offence. However, the theft of four vehicles at the same time from a new or used car lot would involve one offence only.
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.
The categories may not add to the total for Canada and some provinces
since there are two categories not represented on the table, "Altering,
removing or destroying Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)" and "Total
trafficking in stolen property".
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 Prior to 2010, the fraud category includes identity theft and identity fraud, but in recent years these have been separated into their own categories. Therefore use caution when comparing 2010 onward to previous years.
b Identity fraud and identity theft are new violation codes which were introduced in January 2010. Some police services revised historical data, and as a result may have affected some of the 2009 data; therefore these data should be interpreted with caution.Source: Statistics Canada, Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics, Special Tabulations, 2006 to 2015.
