- Articles and reports: 85-002-X201100111530Geography: CanadaDescription:
In 2009, as part of its General Social Survey program, Statistics Canada conducted a survey on victimization and public perceptions of crime and the justice system, which included questions regarding victimization and safety on the Internet. Interviews were conducted by telephone with approximately 19,500 respondents, aged 15 and older, living in the 10 provinces. Respondents aged 18 and over living with children aged 8 to 17 were also asked to provide information on these children's experiences with victimization on the Internet.
This Juristat article presents information on victimizations on the Internet as reported by respondents in 2009, with a particular focus on Internet bank fraud, cyber-bullying, hate content on the Internet and problems with Internet purchases. It analyses the characteristics associated with such incidents, including the socio-demographic risk factors, reporting to authorities and perceptions of general safety on the Internet.Release date: 2011-09-15

- Articles and reports: 11-008-X201000111123Geography: CanadaDescription:
This article uses the 2004 General Social Survey on criminal victimization to explore how men and women of the core working age population (25 to 54 years) living in Census Metropolitan Areas differ in the precautions taken to avoid victimization. The results indicate that though men and women do not differ substantially in the amount of crime they perceive around them - they do differ in the precautions taken to avoid victimization. This difference remains unchanged even when other factors like fear of crime, income, age, and victimization experiences are taken into account.Release date: 2010-03-08
- 8. Multiple Victimization in Canada, 2004 ArchivedArticles and reports: 85F0033M2010022Geography: CanadaDescription:
A large proportion of all victimization incidents are experienced by a relatively small number of victims who experienced multiple incidents. According to the 2004 General Social Survey (GSS) on Victimization, a little more than 10% of the population aged 15 and over were the victims of more than one crime during the 12 months preceding the survey, representing 60% of all criminal incidents. If one considers only violent crimes, 2% of the population accounted for 60% of all violent victimization reported to the GSS.
Given that a small proportion of individuals and households face a significant proportion of crimes, as a result determining which characteristics increases a person's risk of being victimized will help to improve the effectiveness of crime prevention measures, and perhaps help prevent further incidents of victimization.Release date: 2010-01-06
- 9. Criminal Victimization and Health: A Profile of Victimization Among Persons with Activity Limitations or Other Health Problems ArchivedArticles and reports: 85F0033M2009021Geography: CanadaDescription:
According to the 2006 Participation and Activity Limitation Survey (PALS), over 4.4 million Canadians, 14% of the population, reported at least one physical or mental condition limiting them in their daily activities. Moreover, with an ageing population, that number is expected to grow in the coming years. It is now all the more important to get an accurate picture of criminal victimization of persons with disabilities in Canada.
Based essentially on 2004 General Social Survey (GSS) data, this profile presents an analysis of the links between criminal victimization and activity limitations, and certain other health factors. In particular, it analyzes characteristics of incidents, victims and their perpetrators. Finally, the perceptions of persons with activity limitations of crime and the justice system are discussed.Release date: 2009-05-26
- 10. Household Income and Victimization in Canada, 2004 ArchivedArticles and reports: 85F0033M2009020Geography: CanadaDescription:
The risk of becoming the victim of violent crime or household property crime can vary according to the mix of social, economic and demographic factors that characterize an individual's circumstances. Income is one such factor. Using data primarily from the 2004 General Social Survey (GSS), this report profiles violent and household victimization among Canadians from low-income households (i.e., under $15,000). The report also provides information on who victims turn to for help, perceptions of neighbourhood safety as well as fear of crime among Canadians from low-income households.Release date: 2009-04-16

- Articles and reports: 85-002-X20020048414Geography: CanadaDescription:
The 2000 International Crime Victimization Survey (ICVS) provides comparable international information on the nature and extent of crime. Respondents supply detailed information on 11 types of crime, including when, where and how often offences occurred over the previous five years; whether offences were reported to the police; and whether victimization experiences were considered serious. Participants give their opinions on public safety, policing and sentencing.
This Juristat presents an overview of the findings of the 2000 ICVS and makes comparisons with previous survey cycles from 1989, 1992 and 1996. The majority of the analysis focuses on data from the following 13 of 17 participants: Canada, Australia, Belgium, England and Wales, Finland, France, Japan, the Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Poland, Scotland, Sweden and the United States. Canada was one of the 17 industrialized countries that participated in 2000 and is one of five industrialized countries to have participated in all four cycles of the survey.Release date: 2002-05-30
