1. It should be noted that approximately half of the vehicle thefts in Winnipeg in 2007 were "attempts", higher than the national average of about 15%. Both the decrease in the number of "completed" vehicle thefts in Winnipeg, as well as the increase in "attempted" thefts, may be attributed to the new provincial requirement for specifi c high-risk vehicles to be equipped with immobilizers, rendering these vehicles much more diffi cult to steal.
Note:Rates are calculated on the basis of 100,000 population. The population estimates come from Statistics Canada, Demography Division. Populations as of July 1st: preliminary postcensal for 2007. Percent change based on unrounded rates and are in comparison to the previous year's rate.
