    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This Juristat provides a statistical profile of fraud in Canada. It examines trends in fraud offences, characteristics of incidents and offenders, as well as certain adult court and sentencing information. These data suggest that the nature of fraud offences has changed considerably over the years; however, official police and court data are limited sources of information in some respects. As a result, additional information from qualitative studies is used to supplement the data in order to provide context to the overall issue of fraud and certain aspects of “white collar” crime.

    Description:

    While most property crimes in Canada have been decreasing in recent years, motor vehicle thefts continue to climb steadily. This growth has caused concern among the general public and has resulted in increased use of anti-theft devices by car owners. The consequences of motor vehicle theft are largely monetary, but may also result in physical harm if the victim is robbed of their vehicle (known as carjacking) or if the theft results in a high-speed pursuit by police. Motor vehicles are usually stolen either for “joy-riding” (usually by youths), for re-sale by organized criminal groups or to commit another crime.

    Description:

    Impaired driving continues to be a subject of considerable concern in Canada. Traffic accidents are the primary cause of death for 15 to 19 year-olds and the second leading cause for 20 to 44 year-olds. In all too many instances, the drivers involved have been drinking before getting behind the wheel. In 1995, statistics show that more than 3,600 persons died in traffic accidents and that over one-third of driver fatalities involved alcohol.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 45-20-0001
    Description:

    The Canadian Index of Multiple Deprivation (CIMD) is an area-based index which used 2016 Census of Population microdata to measure four key dimensions of deprivation at the dissemination area (DA)-level: residential instability, economic dependency, situational vulnerability and ethno-cultural composition.

    The CIMD allows for an understanding of inequalities in various measures of health and social well-being. While it is a geographically-based index of deprivation and marginalization, it can also be used as a proxy for an individual. The CIMD has the potential to be widely used by researchers on a variety of topics related to socio-economic research. Other uses for the index may include: policy planning and evaluation, or resource allocation.

    This objective of this report is to present the status of national data on Aboriginal people who come into contact with the criminal justice system as offenders and victims. The report examines the current and potential collection of an individual's Aboriginal identity through various justice-related surveys at Statistics Canada, the challenges within these surveys to collect these data and provides some insight into the quality of these data.

Data sources examined include the Incident-based Uniform Crime Reporting Survey, the Homicide Survey, the Integrated Criminal Courts Survey, the Adult Corrections Survey, the Youth Custody and Community Services Survey, the Youth Alternative Measures Survey, the Transition Home Survey, the Victim Services Survey and the General Social Survey on Victimization. Finally, the report briefly describes efforts by other countries to improve justice-related information on their indigenous populations.
