1. A census metropolitan area (CMA) refers to a large urban core (at least 100,000 population) combined with adjacent urban and rural areas that have a high degree of economic and social integration. A CMA typically comprises more than one police service.
2.CMA populations have been adjusted to follow policing boundaries.
3. The CMA of Oshawa is excluded from this table due to the incongruity between the police service jurisdictional boundaries and the CMA boundaries.
4. Percent change based upon unrounded rates.
5. Ottawa refers to the Ontario part of the Ottawa-Gatineau CMA.
6. Abbotsford-Mission and Kingston became CMAs in 2001. As such, the percent change in the rate is calculated from 2001 to 2008.
7. Barrie, Brantford, Guelph, Kelowna, Moncton and Peterborough became CMAs as of the 2006 Census. As such, percent changes are not calculated.
8. Gatineau refers to the Quebec part of the Ottawa-Gatineau CMA.
