Note: Calculations for percent distribution are based on total custody admissions excluding those where the sex is not stated.
1. Data for these respondents are from the new Integrated Correctional Services Survey and have been tabulated from microdata for the years commencing as follows: Newfoundland and Labrador, 2001/2002; Nova Scotia, 2002/2003; New Brunswick, 2002/2003; Ontario 2003/2004; Saskatchewan, 2001/2002; Alberta, 2005/2006. For these respondents, percentage calculation is based on sentenced custody totals excluding intermittent sentences. Accordingly, comparisons to data from previous years should be made with caution.
2. Alberta has been excluded due to a system change that occurred in 2005/2006 which altered the methodology by which admissions to custody were calculated.
3. Due to missing data for some years, totals and percentage calculations exclude Prince Edward Island, Alberta and Nunavut.
