In 2008, there were about 167,500 youth accused of a police-reported Criminal Code offence and another 27,600 youth were accused of drug and other federal statute violations. To gain a better understanding of the nature of youth crime in Canada (i.e., crimes where the accused was a youth aged 12 to 17), it is useful to consider where and when these crimes occur. Using information from the 2008 Incident-based Uniform Crime Reporting Survey (UCR2), this report examines the location, time of year, day of the week and time of day of police-reported youth crimes.
