May 2009 

The May 2009 issue of Juristat contains four articles.

"Residents of Canada's Shelters for Abused Women 2008" presents new data about the abused women who turned to women's shelters for support in 2008 — the types of shelters they accessed, their reasons for going to a shelter, whether or not their children were with them, and what their plans were when they left the shelter are among the factors discussed.

The article, "Youth custody and community services 2007/2008" combines a statistical overview of young people entering and leaving custody and community service programs in 2007/2008 with a special focus on trends in admissions and releases since the Youth Criminal Justice Act came into effect.

Two other articles, "Police-reported hate crime in Canada, 2007" and "Trends in police-reported drug offences in Canada" are featured in this edition of The Daily.

The May 2009 issue of Juristat, Vol. 29, no. 2 (85-002-X, free) is now available online. From the By subject module of our website choose Crime and Justice.
